Advanced Power Strip Program

Advanced power strips (also referred to as energy-saving surge protectors) can be a useful means of saving energy and they allow some devices to be automatically controlled based on whether a primary device is on or off.

Rebate Guidelines

  • $5.00 Rebate for an Intelligent Power Strip (commercial rebate only)
  • Must send in copies of receipts showing the purchase of intelligent power strip
  • Must comply with Commercial Rebate Guidelines

Intelligent Power Strips must contain a number of controlled sockets and at least one uncontrolled socket.  When an appliance that is plugged into the uncontrolled socket is turned off, the power strip automatically shuts off appliances plugged into the controlled sockets.

For instance, if a computer that is plugged into the uncontrolled socket is turned off, the monitor, speaker, printer, etc. that are plugged into the controlled sockets will also turn off instead of going into standby mode.
