This is not an advertisement or a commercial. I was going to the iPod store on Knox (in Uptown, Dallas) and noticed this new store right next door called "Current Energy." Tag line: "We’ll plug you in." I liked the design of the store and decided to go in and check the place out. First impression, these people are very friendly and eager to help. Second impression, what are they selling? That’s below. The store was pretty cool, and the website‘s not too shabby either.
Here’s what they are selling/explaining/consulting, etc.: Rinnai tankless water heater, Rainbird irrigation control, Toto dual flush toilet, Honeywell digital thermostats + air treatment systems, Lutron + Crestron whole house controls, Mitsubishi Mr. Slim ductless air conditioner, Neptune cfl + lighting science group LED lights, Trane xl19i Seer air conditioner, Radiant Barrier products, Vista window tinting and solar screens, Owens corning insulation products, etc. They have a consultation room, kids learning center (using state-of-the-art macs and computer games), and home energy resource library.
They give you information on switching your electric provider (explaining both the low-cost options (Gexa) and green options (Green Mountain)). They can talk you through the benefits of Energy Star and you can ask them all sorts of questions. They provide energy audit services, etc. I did stump them a couple times with my questions, but they were willing to get the answers. If you’re thinking about renovating, buying, building new, or whatever, you should educate yourself and go talk to these people. They’ll open your eyes to new ideas, that’s for sure.
Here’s the address for all you Dallasites:
3103 Knox Street, Dallas, Texas 75205
