npower has today launched ‘Intelligent Fix –April 2017’, a new online dual fuel, direct debit fixed tariff that offers the Nest Learning Thermostat™. npower is the first energy company in Europe to have a partnership with Nest and will offer the Nest Learning Thermostat, including standard installation, for £99 (valued at £279, if purchased standalone from npower). Simon Stacey, npower’s managing director of energy services, commented, “We’ve designed this tariff to give customers control over their energy prices until April 2017. Combined with the Nest Learning Thermostat, customers will have even more control over their day-to-day energy use, even when they’re not at home.” npower's Intelligent Fix tariff fixes energy prices until April 2017. Annual charges are £12 more than npower’s standard charges – meaning only £1 per month across a whole year*. The Nest Learning Thermostat is a heating programmer and thermostat all in one. It learns your preferred temperatures and adjusts based on your personal schedule. And with its built-in sensors, the Nest Learning Thermostat knows when the house is empty and automatically turns down the temperature, helping to save energy. “With OFGEM saying that U.K. residents spend on average about £1,342 per year on energy**, and heating responsible for over 60 percent of the bill, we wanted to help put consumers in control of their energy use,” said Lionel Paillet, general manager for Europe, Nest. “We are thrilled to partner with npower in the UK and introduce savings and energy-awareness into more homes.” www.npower.com/nest
