A new service from the city is aiming to cut energy usage by making it clear to residents how they can save energy – and money.
The new Energy Upgrade Mountain View program uses a website that assesses the energy use on your PG&E bill and allows you to see your energy use. In-home energy use assessments or several other services will be free to the first 1,500 residents who apply.
To qualify for the service, residents must have lived in Mountain View for one year, be willing to report their energy usage for the last 12 months and have both gas and electric PG&E Smart Meters installed in their homes. Users of the website must have a PG&E online account to register.
