Happy New Year!
New Year, new....water heater (insert groan here). Sometimes the expenses we incur as a homeowner are unplanned and decisions are made in a hurry. The best kind of home investments are the ones where you get to choose the timing and reap the rewards whether you're saving money, saving the environment or both!

Connected Technology is in the business of making that happen for you! What's on your list for 2022? Solar panels, an electric vehicle, battery back up? So much of the decision making is the education. Our experts (humans) are here to help. When you schedule a technician to visit your home they will assess your needs and discuss your options. We'll work with your timeframe and your budget to help you achieve your money-saving, energy-saving goals. Our 5-star ratings aren't just there for us to brag about. They are there for your peace of mind that we are truly in the business of "celebrated customer service." No pressure, just excellent service. For YOU. Keep reading for important changes for SMUD customers and some fun events coming up!

Love Bella, Caspian and Shasta
If you're a SMUD customer who has considered solar installation, now is the time. We're not just saying that to sell you something. SMUD is making big changes. Solar customers on the existing Net Energy Metering (NEM 1.0) rate can remain on that rate through 2030. They receive ~ .14¢ for each kWh that SMUD buys back. After
March 1, 2022, new customers participating in this program will only receive 7.4¢/kWh. Wow, right?

As our valued customer, we want our customers to be informed so that they can take advantage of the higher rate by getting solar NOW. Is this you? When you call our office we'll schedule a technician to give you an estimate and answer any questions you have. Our books will fill up fast so please call soon so we can assure you a spot! Want to learn more about our solar installations? Visit our website. Then call us at 916-824-1800. We're here for you!

Time to Change the Battery!
Have you changed your smoke alarm batteries lately? Don't wait until that 2 a.m. wake-up alert that the battery is low (why does it always happen when we're fast asleep??). It's recommended that you change the batteries twice a year. So get those fresh batteries in and mark you calendar for July to do it again!

We'll Sponsor This Adoption!
Our rescue cats are an important part of our family and we wish to bless others with the same joy through an adoption sponsorship program at FieldHaven Feline Center.

Can't adopt but want to donate?

This sweet girl came into the shelter more than six months ago! Her name is Ghost Simpson and she is a shy, loving & chatty girl who is looking for a forever home. She's a great conversationalist who loves a warm lap to snuggle. She enjoys the children in her foster home. Won't you visit her and other furry friends up for adoption? Start the New Year with a new addition! Tell them Connected Technology sent you!

Please contact FieldHaven Feline Center to learn how to adopt this adorable feline.
