Here's how Energy Shift works.
Understanding what powers your home.
Energy from a mix of sources provides the electricity for your home. Some of these energy sources are fossil fuels such as coal and gas, while others are renewable sources such as wind and solar.
In addition to the mix of energy sources, electricity prices can fluctuate throughout the day. Energy Shift helps you navigate these changes automatically by reducing energy consumption during times throughout the day when energy prices are higher.2
More action, more impact.
As you earn enough Leafs to reach a milestone, you can extend your positive impact by directing Nest Renew funds to nonprofit partners.4 In addition to helping to support clean energy, you're now also helping to steer our support of community projects around the country.
