Hooray! If you live in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, or Sonoma county, you most likely live in a region that is eligible to receive a no-cost kit* containing energy and water-saving measures.

However, we don't plan to resume servicing your city until Fall 2024. This means that, after you complete this 15 minute survey, and as long as your home meets our eligibility requirements, we will ship you an energy and water efficiency kit towards the end of this year.

IF DEEMED ELIGIBLE, would you prefer to receive 1 smart power strip or multiple smart plugs?

Note 1: These are very similar devices. 
  • The smart power strip will reduce your power usage by FULLY shutting down power to all of the products connected to your television (e.g. speaker, gaming system, DVD player) when your television is off and not allowing them to go into standby mode. 
  • A smart plug will similarly allow you to reduce this "vampire" draw of energy but only from one device at a time. A smart plug will also give you the capability to control the flow of power (turn on/off, set schedules/routines) to that device from your smartphone.
Note 2: Smart plugs require you to have a smartphone and to download an app on your phone

Note 3: Preference only available while supplies last
