Power Savings Blitz gives you free faucet aerators

As part of your $1,000 in free energy-efficient upgrades, the Power Savings Blitz contractors will install aerators on your faucets. Aerators reduce the water coming through the faucets by mixing it with air. Water flow is reduced but water pressure is maintained, so you won't notice a difference but you'll be using less water for immediate savings.

Since there's no cost to you for Power Savings Blitz, your payback is immediate.
