Best and Worst of the Week in Santa Clara: Silicon Valley Power’s Discounts and Karen Hardy’s Push to Get Rid of Clean Up Campaign

By Robert Haugh

The Good — The Leg Drop Award:

Silicon Valley Power (SVP) has created an online Marketplace where Santa Clarans can shop for energy-saving devices like smart thermostats, lighting and electric vehicle chargers.

And get discounts on electric yard care equipment.

The Bad — The Jabroni Award:

It’s a popular Santa Clara tradition. But the City is now studying alternatives to the Annual Cleanup Campaign and may get rid of it.

It’s an idea that Councilwoman Karen Hardy has been pushing since she was first elected four years ago.
