During my hikes and camping trips around the Bay Area, I'm reminded that an added benefit of reducing energy use is a healthier environment. At the City of Palo Alto Utilities, my work helping residents to become more energy-efficient also helps the great outdoors stay great. I guide our customers to make wise energy-efficiency improvements, lower their utility bills and create more comfortable living spaces. I also encourage people to use our SMART Energy Rebate program to get money back for purchasing eligible efficient appliances. I let residents know about available state and federal rebates, too. It's a win-win for residents and for the environment. It feels good knowing I can make a difference in my customers' utility bills and in the places I love to hike.
