Residential LED Rebates up to $5 per Bulb
The quality and variety of LED lighting have come a long way, but most importantly, the energy efficiency of the lighting is outstanding. To encourage you to use LED lights, Vera Water and Power provides a rebate up to $5 per bulb on Energy Star qualified LED light bulbs. The rebate can’t exceed 70% of the purchase price of the bulb. Rebate form.
Advanced Smart Power Strips
Do you ever fall asleep watching TV, or leave the house/room and forget to turn the TV off? No worries! The APS system monitors the activity on your TV and automatically turns it off when it is not being watched. Advanced Smart Power Strips can save up to 50% of the energy used by TVs in typical households. Each household will be eligible to receive a professional installation of two APS systems and instructions on how to best use them.
These high-performance showerheads will deliver a great shower, yet reduce the amount of water you use, saving on your water, water heating, and energy costs. Vera is committed to helping customers manage their energy use and hope you enjoy the benefits of the audit and products you receive through this program. This measure is currently only available to customers with electric water heaters.
Warm-up time and Dimmer Switches for CFLs
When turned on, CFLs do not initially come on at full brightness. It takes approximately one minute for CFLs to achieve their full brightness. This characteristic of CFLs is a result of how they manage the heat they produce to maximize the life of the CFL. CFLs are not to be used with dimmers. If used in a socket controlled by a dimmer, damage can occur to the CFL or the dimmer switch.
There is a correct way to dispose of CFLs when they fail. Like paint and batteries, CFLs should be recycled when they no longer work. Visit www.recycleabulb.com/locations for recycling locations in your area.
