It allows someone to use their activated cell phone to contact the appropriate 911 center via text message instead of calling 911.

You should only use text to 911 if

  • you are in a situation where it is not safe to place a voice call to 911 
  • you are experiencing a medical emergency where you are unable to speak, or
  • you are deaf, hard of hearing, or have a speech disability. 

Calling 911 is still a faster and more efficient way of relaying an emergency to the Public Safety Dispatchers.

Smart thermostat rebate - electric

Rebate doubled to help you save

Coming off another weekend of extreme heat and high electricity demand reminds us that we all play an important role in conserving energy.

One of the most effective ways to save energy and money is programming your thermostat. With people spending more time at home, now is the perfect time to install a smart thermostat – allowing you to stay comfortable while conserving energy.

With our newly enhanced rebate, customers will receive up to $200 on the purchase of a qualifying smart thermostat. A smart thermostat is a Wi-Fi enabled device that automatically adjusts your home’s heating and cooling, reducing your home energy use and lowering your monthly electricity bills.

For more information on this enhanced rebate and other programs from Roseville Electric Utility, visit roseville.ca.us/rebates.
