Roseville Utilities Monthly Update November 2018



The hunt for savings is on

We are shaking things up a bit this holiday season. This year's Home for the Holidays exhibit at the Utility Exploration Center gives Roseville residents a chance to receive one strand of 100 LED holiday lights plus other useful household items after completing a quick and fun scavenger hunt throughout the Center. Drop by to explore the exhibit and discover ways to save energy and water and reduce waste during this busy time of year. 




Water wise house calls

We make (water wise) house calls

“Remember when doctors used to make house calls?” asked Bobby Alvarez, water efficiency administrator. “That’s exactly what we do in our Water Wise House Calls program. We send our water doctors to people’s homes to diagnose problems and recommend solutions.”

Customers who receive a Water Wise House Call find their water usage declined by an average of 15 percent, though savings of 30 percent or more have been documented.




When in doubt, check it out

Phone scams targeting utility customers are a problem nationally. Locally, we’ve noticed scammers target businesses – coming in and leaving quickly. These callers claim to represent the City of Roseville and threaten to disconnect your electric service if they do not receive immediate payment. To help in their scam, they have made their phone calls appear to be coming from a legitimate Roseville phone number.




Gardening Greenly

When teaching her Green Gardner at Home series at the Utility Exploration Center, Cheryl Buckwalter sometimes hears this from a student: "I wish I knew this six months ago! I just got my landscaping done and no one told me about that!" 


But she also hears an equal number of comments like this: "Wow, I've got to tell my friends and family about this. None of us knew trees should not be topped!"


Cheryl is the lead instructor for the eight-week Green Gardner at Home workshop series, using her knowledge and experience as a landscape practitioner for more than 13 years. Learn more
