Following Nest's UK launch early last month, the Google-owned connected home company is partnering with nPower to bring smarter heating to the British energy supplier's customers. Nest is available through nPower's Intelligent Fix April 2017 price plan for £99 including installation, which it says is a saving of £179. (Nest's UK retail price is £179, but this doesn't include installation.) Energy prices are then fixed until 30 April 2017 under the tariff, which is available to dual fuel customers paying by direct debit.
nPower isn't the first energy provider to show an interest in connected thermostats — the "Hive," created by British Gas, launched in the UK market while Nest was still limited to the U.S. market, though that device sells for a pricier £199.
