Help Promote Clean Energy in Fremont

Pecan Street

Fremont households are invited to participate in a smart home energy research project with Pecan Street Inc., a non-profit energy and water research organization partnering with the City of Fremont.

Participants will receive eGauge devices that collect and display one-second interval energy data in real-time on a secure online platform. Each eGauge device, provided at no charge to participants, will be mounted inside or adjacent to the home’s electrical panel by a licensed electrician. Pecan Street will prioritize owner-occupied households that already have rooftop solar, plug-in electric vehicles, and/or home energy storage systems in place.

Participation in the program is completely free and voluntary. Interested households will go through a preliminary screening process to determine eligibility, and those chosen to participate will sign agreements to protect their data privacy and confidentiality. The data collected by Pecan Street will be shared with university researchers and industry-leading companies to help cities like Fremont develop and expand upon their clean energy policies and programs.

Visit the Pecan Street Resources webpage for more information, including volunteer stories and an online participant agreement.
