‘Energy Emergency’: Thousands of Customers Lose Control of Thermostats Inside Their Homes

Is this another sinister part of the climate change agenda?

Losing the ability to control the temperature inside your home?

Whenever the globalists want to ‘conserve energy,’ they forbid you to crank up the air conditioning.

Thousands of Denver residents may have gotten a sneak peak of that this week during the latest heat wave.

22,000 people reportedly lost control of temperatures in their homes for hours on Tuesday.

Xcel customers were locked out of their thermostats during the ‘energy emergency.’

Denver 7 picked up the story:

But when thousands of Xcel customers in Colorado tried adjusting their thermostats Tuesday, they learned they had no control over the temperatures in their own homes.

Temperatures climbed into the 90s Tuesday, which is why Tony Talarico tried to crank up the air conditioning in his partner’s Arvada home.

“I mean, it was 90 out, and it was right during the peak period,” Talarico said. “It was hot.”

That’s when he saw a message on the thermostat stating the temperature was locked due to an “energy emergency.”

“Normally, when we see a message like that, we’re able to override it,” Talarico said. “In this case, we weren’t. So, our thermostat was locked in at 78 or 79.”

On social media, dozens of Xcel customers complained of similar experiences — some reporting home temperatures as high as 88 degrees.

Xcel confirmed to Contact Denver7 that 22,000 customers who had signed up for the Colorado AC Rewards program were locked out of their smart thermostats for hours on Tuesday.

“It’s a voluntary program. Let’s remember that this is something that customers choose to be a part of based on the incentives,” said Emmett Romine, vice president of customer solutions and innovation at Xcel.

“Customers receive a $100 credit for enrolling in the program and $25 annually, but Romine said customers also agree to give up some control to save energy and money and make the system more reliable,” the outlet added.


How long will the program be voluntary?
