Thank you for for your participation in Step Up and Power efforts
to reduce energy waste during 2015 and 2016!

Together we've taken a series of simple actions that have added up to make a big impact, surpassing our goals and saving more than 27.6M kWh for the city of San José! That's equivalent to taking over 4,000 passsenger cars off the road for a year (source).

You can continue saving energy and working toward a more sustainable California with expert tips. Learn more! You can also check out our resources page for many more ways to reduce energy waste and engage your employees.

We've exceeded our goals!
