Eligibility and Enrollment. You may apply to become a Participant and participate in the Program if you meet the following eligibility criteria and do the following:
Any additional Devices installed as part of your LADWP system at your service address will be eligible if you choose to enroll them in the Program and LADWP approves the enrollment of these devices. Once enrolled and approved by LADWP, these devices may also participate in Adjustment Events, as described below. Incentives will be provided pursuant to LADWP's offer and the automatic enrollment of additional Devices may not result in additional incentives.
Program Period. The Program will run for the period defined under Definitions section (the “Program Period”). You may be automatically re–enrolled in subsequent Program Periods at LADWP's discretion, subject to the then–current Terms for the Program.
Program Description. Participant agrees to allow Program Parties to control the Participant's Devices during the Program Period. Such adjustments are referred to as “Adjustment Events.” Adjustment Events may change device mode, setpoint, or other settings, as applicable. For Devices that allow for temperature control, Adjustment Events may include or be preceded by “pre–cool” or “pre–heat” periods, wherein the then–current or scheduled target temperature setpoint is temporarily changed to prepare for the subsequent adjustment. For certain types of services offered by the Program Parties, an Adjustment Event may occur even if the Device is in any kind of hold mode at the start of the Adjustment Event. Participant may opt out of an Adjustment Event at any time directly by adjusting his/her device.
How To Apply. You can apply to participate in the Program through your Thermostat Partner's web or mobile account or at the program enrollment website specified below. LADWP may accept or reject your application in its sole discretion.
How To Withdraw. Once you are accepted as a Participant in the Program, you may withdraw by emailing the LADWP contact address specified below or through your Thermostat Partner's account web portal or mobile app. Withdrawal will not affect the other services provided by the Program Parties to you. By withdrawing, you may render yourself ineligible to receive the incentive, participate in the Program in the future, or participate in other programs offered by LADWP or Vendor.
Program Termination. LADWP or Vendor's (with authorization from LADWP) ability to offer the Program is contingent on certain approvals and acceptances. If such approvals and acceptances are withheld or withdrawn, or if the Program is declared unlawful, the Program will be terminated along with the incentive.
