A variety of smart energy gadgets are up for grabs as part of the third and final round of our annual sweepstakes. Entries will be accepted through midnight Thursday (June 6) and prizes will be drawn the following day, on June 7.
It takes less than a minute to enter your name and email address to participate in our Marketplace Sweepstakes. Participants have the opportunity to win connected devices and energy saving products provided by manufacturers. Prizes include smart thermostats, light bulb combo packs, and advanced power strips.
The drawing is open to all residential customers served by SDG&E in San Diego and southern Orange counties.
What You Can Win
The sweepstakes feature the following as prizes:
- Four (4) drawings for one (1) Embertec Advanced Power Strip each
- One (1) drawing for eight (8) Feit Electric LED Light Bulbs
- One (1) drawing for package containing one (1) ecobee3 Lite Smart Thermostat and one (1) TrickleStar Power Strip
- One (1) drawing for package containing one (1) ecobee4 Smart Thermostat and one (1) TrickleStar Power Strip
- One (1) drawing for package containing one (1) ecobee4 Smart Thermostat and one (1) ecobee Switch+ and two (2) Feit Electric Smart WiFi Light Bulbs
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.
