    I always knew that Tennessee wasn’t eco friendly lol 😝. Our recycling truck comes once a month! 😱

    • Hunterwoody

      TN here also. Mine recycle truck comes once a week and leaves most of it. Paper, cardboard boxes. Idk. It all should qualify. Funny you mention that 🤣

    • Mary

      I’ve watched my trash truck pick up both my trash bin & recycle bin and dump them both in the same truck. Have seen them do it twice. I don’t recycle much anymore since then.

      • Lori

        No garbage or recycling pick up in my part of TN. I’ve been at the county landfill dropping off kitchen garbage and have seen them dump recycling with the regular garbage.

      • sharonharding

        I have also seen the garbage truck drivers dump both my recycling and my trash cans into the same garbage truck on trash day here in the Chicago suburb of Schaumburg, Illinois! Makes me wonder why I separate the recycling….

    We received ours in the mail a few days ago. I LOVE it. The power strip is awesome and the kids even got a few night lights that are energy conserving ❤️ Definitely worth it’s if it’s available to you.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      How cool! I love those night lights! We received a few in an energy saving kit a few years back and they still work SO well! Thanks for sharing with us, Brittp!

  6. Amber

    National Grid at least for upstate New York has a marketplace where they have items with instant savings like light bulbs, shower heads, power strips, and more for reduced prices.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks for the tip! Good to know!

  7. Amy

    Does DP&L have one? Dayton Power and Light in Ohio?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

  8. patricialavenz-goff

    Don’t see any in Arkansas.

  9. Megan

    I was able to score a free Nest E thermostat and a Philips Hue starter kit last year with the WI focus on energy program. It seems like they run different deals yearly. I have the page bookmarked so that I remember to check every so often.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Great idea, Megan! Thanks for commenting!

  10. Allison

    This is so great! Does anyone know of anything for AZ?

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks a bunch for sharing the link!

    • Lisa

      Barbie, yes, as someone posted, MidAmerica Energy has it. We got a surge protector (nice one) and 2 LED light bulbs, and our son with MidAmerica also living in a different area, got the surge protector, 2 light bulbs, a shower head, and an aerator for a faucet.

  12. Hoferin

    I guess Arizona does nit participate

  13. Mary

    Looks like ComEd in Illinois has kits available only to low income households.

  14. Stella

    Did anyone see anything from Pepco?

  15. Janet O'Neal

    Duquesne Light (western PA) also offers a free kit if you do their free online energy audit! We got two nightlights, a power strip, and 10 lightbulbs for free!

  21. mama_kaybow

    Anything for Texas?

  22. boltsmom

    Tampa Electric has a free kit too. Online it shows you only get it if you qualify for a couple special programs they offer, but at some point I filled out a form at an event where they had a booth to get one in the mail. So if you have TECO, it’s worth asking even if you don’t qualify for the programs. https://www.tampaelectric.com/residential/saveenergy/educationandoutreach/

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks, boltsmom!

  23. Elizabeth

    Thank you! DP&L Ohio

  24. Shonna

    Thanks! I got one!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You are welcome!

  25. Pixie

    In northeastern ohio we have First Energy. go to ohioenergykit.com and you get 2 3-way led lights, 3 led night lights, a powerstrip and more.

    • tiffshane

      Hi I live in Ohio also and it won’t let me enter my account number? It says it’s to long

      • sharonharding

        I had a similar problem entering my account number, so I called Nicor Gas in Illinois. They said to omit the hyphens, then the account number worked.

  26. Erika maxwell

    DTE Energy in Michigan has a program where you can get a free energy bridge for 6 months. Shows actual watts used at any given moment. My electric bills are now half what they were a year ago from just being aware of what is plugged in or on at any given moment.

  27. T-dubb91

    Idaho power is awesome. We have gotten a couple of the energy saving kits, and they’re pretty neat. They were also giving away free shade trees last year.

  28. tiffshane

    It won’t let me it says account number is to long? Any suggestions

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, are you using a mobile device? If so, maybe try switching to desktop view. If not, be sure to try a different browser. Hoping that might help!

  29. Tina9222

    Our daughter gave our son and us these for Christmas they were selling them at the mall for a decent price she said, it came with 2 smart lights and also the power strip. We’re in MA

  30. Robert

    Nothing is free.
    I’m sure we pay for this in a fee somewhere

    • Lori

      Exactly what i was thinking.

  31. Akikah

    Anyone know if Teco (Tampa, Florida) has a program?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much! I have added that link to our list above!

  32. Dottie

    How about New York Long Island?

  33. Amy

    This kit has a lot. My local electric company provides 4 light bulbs, a faucet aerator, and a shower head.

  34. Smellyann

    Thank you so much! I just scored one, along with shower aerator head & other cool stuff from Idaho Power as well!!

  35. gianinadow@comcast.net

    any for Northern VA? Specifically NOVEC.

  36. Emily A.

    Minnesota Power offers a shower head saving kit if anyone is a MN power customer!

  37. John

    In the mail with my bill I received an energy efficiency kit offer from First Energy, 2 three way lights ,3 led night lights , 1 filter whistle, 1, 7outlet strip. I,ve tried the phone number can,t get through or find the online order, can you help

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! Maybe wait a bit and call back again later today or tomorrow. Hoping you can speak with someone soon!

  38. John

    In the disclaimer, it says, “The costs of this program may be recovered through customer rates in accordance…”

    Anyone have any luck determining exactly what they mean by that?

  39. Melanie Devai

    First Energy has free energy efficiency kits.
