Nest, maker of the award-winning Learning Thermostat, announced today that it’s acquired MyEnergy, an online service that lets you consolidate energy bills and share them with friends and family. Until recently, Nest’s intelligence was limited to the confines of your home. This changed last month when the company launched Energy Services, which lets the thermostat communicate with participating utilities, making it aware of peak pricing and energy crunches. By acquiring MyEnergy, Nest will be able to help its customers manage energy more efficiently through better energy analysis tools. It also gives Nest another way to share information with utilities by tapping into MyEnergy’s user base, which covers 1500 territories in 50 states, including areas without smart meters. Full PR after the break.
