A backup power source for people who depend on it

If you rely on electric or battery-dependent medical technologies such as assistive technology, breathing machines, a power wheelchair or scooter, and home oxygen or dialysis, it is critical that you have a plan in place for an extended power outage.

Backup power can help keep the lights on and appliances running, save perishable food, and power essential equipment and electronics during a power outage. East Bay Community Energy (EBCE) is offering eligible Medical Baseline customers a $1,000 rebate on the purchase of a GoalZero Yeti 3000X Portable Power Station to help prepare for power outages.

To qualify for this rebate, you must satisfy all of these requirements:

  • Be an active EBCE account holder.

  • Be enrolled in the Medical Baseline program.

  • Rely on electric or battery-dependent medical technology at your home.

Double your savings

PG&E offers a separate $1,000 rebate on the GoalZero Yeti 3000X, and as a Medical Baseline customer you may be eligible for this rebate too.

  • EBCE's $1,000 rebate applies to all EBCE customers enrolled in the Medical Baseline program.

If you qualify, both EBCE and PG&E rebates can be applied for separately to reduce your cost by $2,000 – a savings of 58% off the retail price!

EBCE’s rebate only applies to the purchase of a GoalZero Yeti 3000X Portable Power Station purchased through:
