What is PowerMinder
In partnership with VirtualPeaker, the PowerMinder program offers you the peace of mind that your home water heater uses energy when it's best for you without giving up comfort.
What it means for you
Did you know that the average residential customer in California spends 25% of their monthly electricity bill to power their hot water heater? With SMUD's new PowerMinder pilot program, customers can now save up to $100 per year.
