You can apply for a free thermostat and energy assessment online, or by calling. 

Consumer Energy has partnered with "Nest" and will give away 10,000 free thermostats for people who qualify via household income. They'll even install them for free.

It's part of Nest's "Power Project," which aims to give away 1,000,000 free thermostats over the next five years.
