Jacob Stoll was named to Midwest Energy News’ Top 40 Under 40.

“It’s an honor to be named in Midwest Energy News’ Top 40 Under 40, and it gives me the opportunity to highlight programs that I think can really help people save money, like the ComEd’s smart thermostat initiative,” says Jacob, 29.

We launched the “One Million Smart Thermostats” initiative, in October 2015, in partnership with advocacy groups. Working together we help to raise awareness of the great smart thermostats rebates that offer customers up to $150 discount on a smart thermostat purchase. The rebate can basically help cut the costs of this great piece of technology by nearly 50 percent. And, that does not include the savings the smart thermostat can bring customers once it’s installed in their home or business. The smart thermostat rebates are offered by ComEd and other Illinois gas utilities for customers with WiFi, central air and a furnace.

“I’m most proud of the fact that the smart thermostat initiative is viewed as an industry-leading program,” Jacob says. “It does what I love to do which is help our customers find new ways to save energy and put more control, convenience and choice into their hands.”

Jacob has worked for ComEd since 2014 and earned a bachelor’s of science degree with a concentration in environmental science and economics from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Mich.
