Residential Advanced Power Strips may be Distributed Over the Counter -
Several customers have indicated that they would like to distribute
residential Advanced Power Strips "over the counter". Over the Counter is
inclusive of direct distribution at an event, at a utility office, or left at a
customer's house at their request. To accommodate these requests, BPA will allow
residential APS to be distributed Over-the-Counter, as long as the Advanced
Power Strips are provided at the end-user's request for the purpose of
controlling a Home Entertainment Center. Please note customer request does not
have to be un-prompted. You may ask customers questions like "Would you like to
try an Advanced Power Strip to make your Home Entertainment Center more energy
These should be claimed using the Mail by Request RefNo RELPL11973. For details on documentation requirements please see page 99 of the Implementation Manual. This decision is retroactive to when residential Advanced Power Strips became available in the IM on October 1, 2013.
