October 6, 2021

 Each October, AES Indiana, a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), recognizes National Energy Awareness Month to raise the importance of sustainability, promote energy efficiency tips for customers and acknowledge the critical role energy plays in our daily lives. These energy efficiency tips and resources are just a few ways we can accelerate the future of energy, together.  

AES Indiana offers new innovative solutions to its customers through strategic partnerships that enhance energy experiences

  • Partnering with Google, AES Indiana will provide customers a more personalized experience through Nest Renew. Designed to work with compatible Nest thermostats*, Nest Renew can help you prioritize clean energy and track the positive difference you’re making on the environment.  
  • Nest Renew helps customers automatically shift their heating and cooling electricity usage to times when energy is cleaner. This flexibility is key in making better use of the clean energy in your area. Nest Renew is rolling out in early preview by invitation beginning Fall 2021. 
  • AES Indiana recently launched the Plus app which makes it simple to manage, pay for, understand your energy in a new way, and use a personalized payment method that works best for you

As temperatures begin to cool down this fall, there are several ways customers can manage their energy usage and save:  

  • Install a programmable or Wi-Fi enabled thermostat. Proper use can save you about $180 per year in energy costs.    
  • Adjust the temperature. Set your thermostat to as low as comfortably possible. When you are asleep or out of the house turn your thermostat back 10°-15° for eight hours to save energy and manage costs.   
  • Take advantage of heat from the sun. Open window coverings to allow sunlight to naturally heat your home.   
  • Improve the efficiency of your HVAC system by replacing air filters, tuning it up, or upgrading. A new system can save you $150 or more per year in energy costs.  
  • Seal air leaks. Add caulk or weather stripping to seal air leaks around leaky doors and windows.   
  • Purchase LED bulbs which use up to 90% less energy than incandescent bulbs and last up to 25 times longer. The average home uses 40 bulbs

These tips are useful during Energy Awareness Month, and every month of the year. For more tips on ways to save visit
