GoodCents: November Featured Collection Partner of the Month
The Thermostat Recycling Corporation’s (TRC) collection location of the month for November is GoodCents, a partner that has recycled over 650 thermostats and 6.5 pounds of mercury in the last four years. GoodCents’ purpose is to help all people use the world’s precious resources more efficiently. They develop tailored energy efficiency, demand response and integrated demand-side management program solutions to help utility clients improve their communities and their customers’ quality of life.
“TRC has been a great partner since 2007. They provide us with a safe method to dispose of the mercury thermostats we remove from homes when we are installing smart thermostats.”
– David Fleming, Account Manager – Northern California
The replacement of a mercury thermostat with a smart thermostat is one of the first steps to saving money on energy bills and making a building greener and more energy-efficient. When a consumer can program their thermostat to automatically turn down during hours they are asleep or gone from the building, cost savings quickly eclipse the cost of the new smart thermostat. Using TRC’s program, GoodCents makes sure to recycle the mercury thermostats they replace.
Over the last 40 years, GoodCents has implemented more than 55 energy efficiency and demand response programs in more than 20 states and provinces. That extensive utility program experience has taught GoodCents how to be responsive to each client’s unique needs. Together with their clients, this company has helped millions of customers use energy more efficiently.
