It takes less than a minute to enter your name and email address to participate in our Marketplace Sweepstakes. Thanks to donations from manufacturers, more than $3,100 worth of connected devices and energy saving products are available as prizes. Winners will receive items such as smart thermostats, light bulb combo packs, and advanced power strips.
The drawings are open to all residential customers served by SDG&E in San Diego and southern Orange counties. Simply submit your information by midnight, Thursday, May 23.
Prizes That Make Managing Energy Use a Snap
The upcoming sweepstakes features the following:
- Three drawings for one TrickleStar Power Strip each
- Two drawings for Feit Electric LED Light Bulbs (packs of eight) each
- Two drawings for package containing one ecobee3 Lite Smart Thermostat and one TrickleStar Power Strip each
- One drawing for package containing one ecobee4 Smart Thermostat and one Tricklestar Power Strip
These gadgets allow users to easily control their energy use through smart phone applications or smart speakers. For example, if your device is connected to a smart speaker, you can use voice commands to turn it on or off.
With a smart thermostat like the ecobee3 Lite and ecobee4, users can remotely turn down the A/C during the day while they are at work and turn it back up before they get home – all through an app on their phone.
Advanced power strips cut off the flow of electrons to electronics that are not in use, therefore eliminating standby power, also known as vampire draw or phantom power. One study has shown that standby power accounts for 23 percent of an average household’s power consumption and represents roughly about a quarter of its electricity bill.
