“Green” often implies extra costs and effort for consumers—but ecobee inverts assumptions by providing convenience and savings. Matching the impact of a hybrid car or solar roof—without the high cost—ecobee saves users an average of 23% on their heating and cooling. Environmentally speaking, ecobee has taken the equivalent of 150,000 people off the grid.
The organization was founded in 2007 with the goal of helping consumers save money, conserve energy, and improve the environment. Realizing that heating and cooling represent the largest portions of home energy usage, ecobee responded by creating its iconic smart thermostat. Since then, ecobee has continually refined its product and is now a leader in the burgeoning connected home marketplace.
