Public Power Week is October 1-7

The American Public Power Association (APPA) recognizes the first week in October as Public Power Week. During that week, they highlight the benefits of public power that 2,000 not-for-profit, community-owned electric utilities across the United States provide. The City of Alameda has our own local electricity provider, Alameda Municipal Power (AMP), which provides the community with 100% clean energy.

In support of Public Power Week, AMP has shared a few exciting offers available to Alameda residents:

  • Double Rebate: For a limited time, AMP is doubling its smart thermostat rebate up to $100 when you pair it with your $1,500-rebate approved heat pump HVAC system. Other rebates are available for electric vehicles, solar panel upgrades, and appliances.
  • DIY Energy Audit Guide: AMP has launched a new DIY Home Energy Audit program. Customers can get a personalized guide to learn more about energy usage and ways to make your home more energy efficient. When you make your request, AMP will send you a personalized guide. You can then implement these suggestions or find a contractor for technical assistance
  • EV Expo: Sunday, October 8: The Electric Vehicle (EV) and E-Bike Expo is coming to downtown Alameda, in City Hall’s parking lot at 1555 Oak St. The event will showcase a variety of EVs and E-bikes.
