A West Roseville resident reported this week that a salesperson came to his door selling energy efficiency audits or offering to compete with PG&E for natural gas service.
The City of Roseville is not associated with either solicitation. The City of Roseville has no other information about the solicitations and does not endorse any such offers. However, the City advises its residents and Roseville Electric customers to be cautious and take time to research any such offers.
Additionally, every person soliciting orders for or selling goods, merchandise or services door to door is required to register with the Police Department and present a validated registration application and photo identification upon request. Residents are encouraged to call the Roseville Police Department at 774.5000 ext. 1 with any concerns about unregistered solicitors or other suspicious behavior.
The Roseville City Council adopted Roseville Electric’s recommendation to increase electric rates by two percent this July and two percent in July, 2014 to meet state mandates related to energy purchases.
Since 2007, the Roseville Energy Park has been using state-of-the-art combined cycle technology to generate approximately 40 percent of the power that Roseville residents and businesses need. Locally generated power has kept prices stable for our customers and enhanced the area’s distribution reliability.
Roseville Electric receives approximately 16 percent of its electricity from hydroelectric resources in northern California. In years with lower than average precipitation, the utility must purchase additional power in the energy market to make up for energy it did not receive. Due to the recent lower than average rainfall, utility customers will see a hydroelectric adjustment on their bills beginning July 1 and continuing through June 30, 2014. The adjustment will account for approximately 1 percent of the total energy bill. For more information please visit www.roseville.ca.us/rates or call (916) 79-POWER.
As a community-owned utility, Roseville Electric is committed to providing outstanding service to our customers.

Roseville Electric crews put the finishing touches on the Centennial Clock earlier this week, permanently sealing the base which houses the community-owned utility's time capsules.
The time capsule holds tools, equipment, reports and other mementos that demonstrate what it was like to work at the electric utility in 2012. The capsule is slated to be reopened in 25 years - Roseville Electric's 125th anniversary.

There will not be a hydroelectric surcharge collected on customer's bills this fiscal year because Roseville Electric's hydroelectric facilities received more than average precipitation.
The surcharge was created to generate additional funds needed to cover the extra costs of having to purchase electricity to make up for energy that could not be produced by dams due to lower than average precipitation levels.

A Roseville transitional housing complex – serving some of the community's most vulnerable families – is able to put more money into its family support programs thanks to a recent energy-saving make over.
Using Roseville Electric rebates, Roseville Home Start expects to reduce its overall energy use and save up to 30 percent on energy costs, which could be a savings of up to $3,000 annually. In these tough economic times, reducing expenses, means Roseville Home Start officials can take that savings and put it in to helping families.
