If you’re interested in the potential financial benefits of adding a solar panel system to your home, you also may be thinking about other energy-efficient upgrades that could potentially help lower your home’s electricity usage and monthly electric bill. At Pink Energy, we believe the solar energy movement is one piece of a larger effort to optimize home energy consumption and reduce carbon footprints across the country. That’s why we offer our SMARTPWR360°™ package, a collection of nine products designed to help your solar electricity go further and potentially reduce your monthly electric bill. Let’s talk more about these products and how they work in tandem with your solar energy system to reduce your home’s environmental impact and potentially save you money.

The SMARTPWR360°™ Product Suite

Offered exclusively at Pink Energy, the SMARTPWR360°™ package includes a range of products that can be incorporated throughout your home in rooms like your kitchen, bathroom, living room, and even your attic. Let’s dive into how each upgrade works to maximize your home’s energy efficiency and potentially reduce electricity costs.

Nest Thermostat

This smart, WiFi-enabled thermostat allows you to adjust your home’s temperature from anywhere, potentially saving energy and lowering your monthly heating and cooling costs.

Smart Power Strips

Unlike standard power strips, smart power strips prevent electronic accessories from wasting power by stopping power to devices that may be plugged in but powered off.

LED Light Bulbs

Because LED light bulbs use less energy than incandescent light bulbs to produce high-quality light, they last longer and can potentially save you money on bulb replacements and your electricity bill.


Our SMARTPWR360°™ low-flow showerheads provide you with a luxurious bathing experience while reducing water usage and potentially lowering water heating costs.

Faucet Aerators

This small device can be installed on the tip of your faucet to limit and streamline water flow to create a splash-free experience, reducing water waste and potentially lowering your monthly water bill.

Air Sealant Tape

Heat and cool your home more efficiently by limiting air leakage through air ducts in your attic with our sealant tape. An efficient HVAC system can potentially reduce your monthly heating and cooling costs.

Blown Insulation

You can further reduce strain on your home’s HVAC system by adding insulation to your rafters. Blown insulation helps sustain internal temperatures, so your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to heat or cool your home.

Attic Staircase Cover

A high-quality attic staircase cover prevents heat from escaping your living space through your attic, potentially maintaining a comfortable home temperature with less work by your HVAC system.

Hot Water Heater Blanket

This blanket insulates your hot water heater, helping to sustain water temperatures and reducing standby heat loss, potentially lowering your water heating costs.
