Dear San José Resident,
The Green Energy Match program sent out the last round of energy statements and coupons for energy savings in July 2013. GEM has been suspended as the city of San Jose and WattzOn take the time to evaluate and re-configure the program. If funding is available in the future a similar program may be provided again. Participants still have an active account at WattzOn.com; we urge them to use this tool for continued savings.
GEM is proud to say that the 650 participants have achieved REAL savings over the last three years, and have made significant progress towards San Jose’s Green Vision goal of reducing 50% energy per capita by 2022.
Participants saved between $20-40 a month which adds up to $250- $500 dollars a year that would otherwise have been spent on utility bills.
Almost 6,000 coupons have been awarded for energy savings. Thanks to dozens of local businesses, who graciously accepted our coupons over the last three years, we urge you to continue to giving these merchants your business.
Coupons for this final month will be valid until the end of October, 2013.
Finally, a huge thank you to YOU! This could not have been possible without your enthusiasm and dedication. Residents in this program have proven that saving energy doesn’t have to be painful, and can even put significant money back in your pocket and into the local economy.
Thank You! Keep up the savings!
Energy Outreach Specialist, WattzOn
