EBCE has partnered with Acterra to provide you a chance to try induction cooking—for free!

Induction is the most energy-efficient cooking technology available today. It cooks food faster than traditional stoves and has the power to match. Professional and home chefs appreciate the precise, steady control, wider temperature range, and quick response time they get with induction cooktops. The difference is in the technology. See for yourself.

The Induction Cooktop Lending Program is a way for East Bay residents to borrow and “test drive” induction cooking in their home for free! This program is available to all East Bay residents—EBCE customers as well as non-EBCE customers who receive electric service from PG&E.
