Electric Vehicle Charging Stations











Today’s electric cars are seeing an evolution in style, speed, and efficiency. More people are now purchasing electric vehicles. Are you thinking of buying a new electric car?  Some questions to ask before you buy.

How do I charge my vehicle?  Lets look at charging options.

Ordinary house current works just fine for most electric vehicles. But for those with larger battery packs and longer range, you may want to consider an electrical upgrade. You can find around town many charging hubs to park and plug. As for charging at home, most new cars come with a plug. Which is usually a lower level, which means it takes longer to charge your vehicle. Upgrading to a higher level charging unit will charge your vehicle faster. 

There are a lot of programs and incentives out there. Check for incentives before you buy from PG&E and SMUD.

Light bulbs today and how to choose which one is best for you.


As more people work from home, lighting for home offices are trending more now. So what is up with all the different light bulbs?

Incandescent Lights, the most common type of bulb and usually last between 700 to 1,000 hours.  However, they are not as energy efficient as other options.

Halogen bulbs are a type of incandescent bulb that is close to natural daylight. They are a little more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs, but they are more expensive.

LED Lights, are extremely energy-efficient and can provide both directional and diffused light, making them great for under-counter task lighting as well as overall room illumination.

CFL Lights Compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) consume a quarter of the energy that incandescent bulbs do and last 10 times longer. They are also quieter, instant on and have warmer tones. 

When buying make sure to read the package. Using light bulbs to save energy is extremely important for our environment and for your energy costs too.

Tips Check into LED Christmas lights. Saves you energy and money!   If you are looking for someone to put them up and take them down for you, give us a call at 916-929-7995.
