11:30am 06/13/2017 Received a call from Luci from Sustainable Energy Outreach.
Asked if I know about the SMUD and PG&E rate increases. Asked if my monthly electricity bill was over $75.
Then asked how much it was. Then stated that they want to make me eligible to receive state funds for solar, windows, insulation, appliances. Then asked me: Do I get any discounts on my electricity bill? Am I the home owner? Do I have a single family home? Have I lived there over 5 years? Am I married? Am I under 72 years of age? Now they want to schedule an appointment that will take 45 minutes to come to my home and do a free audit. They will send out a State Licensed technician. The license is in Electrical Engineering. Must have both myself and my wife at the audit. The company calling is Sustainable Energy Outreach. They are a non-profit. They are paid by the state of California under the California Solar Initiative. They will do the audit and then give me a list of 500 companies that do windows, solar, appliances, etc. I asked for a phone number to call back to set the appointment. At first she was reluctant stating that she will make the appointment now and then if I need to cancel she will give me a phone number. She gave me 1-800-826-8277. They said that they have a website: www.energy.gov . I told her that I wanted to research the company and then I would call back to set an appointment. During the whole conversation when I asked questions she would pause and the line would be blank as if she put me on hold to get instructions from someone standing near her. Then she would come back on the line to talk to me.
I looked up the website she provided and it is the US Department of Energy, not Sustainable Energy Outreach. I previously asked where they (telemarketers) are calling from in previous calls to compare their location to what my phone was showing for the phone number that was being displayed on my cell phone. It is always a different location on my phone but they always manage to say Van Nuys California. I googled and saw that this is only a telemarketing company. I have numerous times asked the telemarketer to place me on their do not call list. That has not worked. This time I called the 1-800-826-8277 phone number and got an answering machine for Sustainable Energy Outreach. On the machine I left my phone number and asked to be placed on their do not call list. I then called back the original phone number that appeared on my phone when they called this morning, 916-863-2857. The phone number was disconnected and not in use.
