We make it easy to use less energy
without sacrificing comfort.
Free Energy Efficient Products

At absolutely no cost to you, one of our qualified partners will install energy efficient products in your home, whether you rent or own. Not only is the installation free, but so are the products we install—which is when the savings really begin. With your newly installed energy efficient products, you can save up to $240 a year. Efficiency partners will visit your home to install products like LED lighting, faucet aerators, or smart power bars depending on your home.

Free Products May Include:
LED Light Bulbs

We’ll change every non-energy efficient bulb in your home. LED bulbs: Create a brighter home, are less expensive to run, are 90% more efficient than incandescent light bulbs and last longer than incandescent bulbs.

Smart Power Bars

Don’t power up electronics you’re not using. Smart power strips: Automatically shut off electronics saving you money and help reduce electronics in stand-by mode, which can waste 5%-10% of your total power bill.

Water-saving Showerheads

With savings like this, you’ll definitely have something to sing about in the shower. Water-saving showerheads: Maintain water pressure while reducing the flow of hot water and save you $100 per year if your household takes two five-minute showers a day.

Faucet Aerators

Enjoy savings and benefits with the turn of a tap. Faucet aerators: Screw on to faucets to reduce the flow of hot water, can reduce the sound of a noisy faucet, can increase particle filtration and save you an average of  up to $20 per year.

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats learn your routine and adjust to create the perfect home temperature. Users can save an average of 12% on annual heating and cooling costs!

Hot Water Tank Wrap

Keep your hot water hot, straight from the source. Hot water tank wraps: Reduce heat loss from tank to tap and save you between 4% – 9% on your water heating bill–or $35+ each year.
