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.

High-Performance Showerheads

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.

CFL Disposal

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 for recycling locations in your area.
