Santa Barbara County, Nov. 4, 2015 – October and Energy Awareness Month may be over, but the emPower Central Coast program is distributing water and energy saving kits to help homeowners continue the savings throughout the year.
The kit — including three faucet aerators and a low-flow showerhead – is available to Southern California Gas Company customers. Just “Like” the emPower Central Coast Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/emPowerSBC) and then fill out the emPower Contact Us form online (http://www.empowersbc.org/contact-us-get-started) for pick-up details. Be sure to include “Water Giveaway” in the message box.
“The aerators and showerhead are great tools to help cut down on water usage and even save you a little in energy costs,” said Janet Wolf, 2nd District Supervisor and Board Chair.
“It’s great to partner with Southern California Gas Company to help residents start saving not just energy, but water as well during a serious drought.
These items are simple to install on faucets and in the shower, and they’ll restrict the water flow while keeping a high-pressure stream. Even better, you’ll be able to use the water temperature you like while using less water.”
