PG&E Gifted Us

As part of their Energy Savings Assistance Program two PG&E (Pacific Gas & Electric) reps gave us a Kohler enCUBE 1.8, replaced a dozen or so of our electric bulbs with energy efficient LED bulbs, and replaced four of our ugly ceiling lights with less ugly lights. All for free!

What’s the catch? Nothing.

This is a lithium-ion battery backup unit. For example, if we lost power to our house (this has happened once), then we could use the enCUBE to power a couple of things like our fridge. However, you can’t power a whole house on one of these things. But, hey, it’s free.

Also, the enCUBE could come in handy for RV boondocking.
