For us, the home is not just an address where we raise our families. It is the world that we inhabit, and it is our only one.
As the late Carl Sagan pointed out in his book Pale Blue Dot, "In everything you love, all of your acquaintances, everyone you've heard of, every human being that ever was, lived their lives."
It is up to us to take care of the Earth, of all future generations.
That's why we did the Nest Learning Thermostat in the first place to help people save energy. And to do our part to help our only home.
When we were investigating thermostats, we were surprised to know that they control half of a household's energy bill. So, the potential impact of a thermostat is enormous. Since its launch in 2011, the Nest Thermostat has saved more than 12 billion kWh of energy. That's enough to push New York City for 81 days.
That's pretty impressive, but we know we can do better. We have to do better. The future of this place we call home depends on finding ways to save more energy and reduce carbon emissions.
In honor of Earth Day, we want to help more people save energy with a Nest Thermostat.
Reversing decades of global warming is a great challenge. But we believe that together, we can change climate change.
Energy saving is an estimate, not a guarantee that any individual user will save energy.
