According to Nest some homes in certain parts of the US are spending as much as 50-percent of their monthly income on energy costs, and Nest sees this as a growing problem that is going to continue, which is a big reason for creating the Nest Power Project and for working to donate free thermostats that can help to lower those energy costs. "We've joined with Habitat for Humanity, Fannie Mae, and energy providers across the country this Earth Day to bring this mission to life through The Power Project, to connect families with the tools and programs that can help alleviate the burden of high energy costs".

The drive is part of a new initiative called The Power Project that hopes to reduce the amount lower-income families spend on their energy bills which, according to Nest's research, can be as high as 20% of their monthly income.

"In addition to saving you over $50 a year on heating and cooling costs, a smart thermostat allows you to control the temperature from anywhere, track your daily energy use and lower your carbon footprint", RMP offcials said. "Every family deserves to have heat in the cold and light in the dark". This will work over the next five years with energy companies and other organizations. Under it, Nest aims to increase awareness of the issue surrounding excessive home energy costs. New U.S. homes being built this year or those getting refurbished will feature a smart thermostat. Also 10% of sales of these thermostats will go to Fund organizations such as Habitat for Humanity (over $500,000). Since 2011, Nest touts thar its thermostats have helped customers globally save more than 22 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy.
