This information is provided as a service to all who are receiving illegal robocalls that begin with Attention public utility customers: PG&E may be raising utility rates. This telemarketer had been calling approximately once per month since early 2010. Starting in late November 2010, they are calling multiple times daily. Each call is a violation of the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
This law allows compensation of $500 for each call received and the information provided here can be used to file a suit to collect damages. They are violating another federal law by calling numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry. Please report all violations at donotcall.gov.

If you transfer to the operator at the end of the robocall, she currently tells you that the company is Advanced Conservation Services with a website of utilityprogram.org. The other information here was easily found using only free websites.

Advanced Conservation Services is owned by Michael Phong Nguyen, 42, of Sacramento. Roger Gordon Kilby, 49, of El Dorado Hills is a vice president. Kyle Gordon Kilby, 23, of El Dorado Hills is a regional sales manager and online spokesman. Note that Elite Conservation Services is the former name of Advanced Conservation Services and the two names are used here interchangeably.

In July 2007, Michael and a previous company he owned settled various charges brought by the San Francisco District Attorney's office. He paid a judgement of over $27,000 and agreed not to engage in the behavior stipulated in the agreement. Recently, the Contractors' State License Board filed an accusation against his contractor's licenses after receiving complaints from at least 10 individuals. In addition, the company has a BBB rating of F. Recent negative articles about them have been published in the Santa Cruz Sentinel and on the CBS5 (San Francisco) website.

The company may have an office at 1106 Windfield Way #2 El Dorado Hills, CA 95762 but it has not been verified. A previous address was 4229 Northgate Boulevard, Suite 6B Sacramento, CA 95834. The frequently used address of 2701 Del Paso Rd. #130-360 Sacramento, CA 95835 is a UPS mailbox. All addresses outside of the Sacramento area, including those in San Francisco and Burbank, are UPS mailbox locations.

The main phone numbers for the company are 415-994-3736 and 866-403-1949. Their websites list 888-202-2306 and 800-585-2495. 510-903-0477, 415-738-0645, and 323-319-5919 are also valid phone numbers.

Company websites include lowbidheatandair.com eliteconservationservices.com utilityprogramca.net utilityprogramca.org utilityprogram.org

Unfortunately, a useful web article by CBS5 San Francisco has been deleted. The following quotes are from the article:
Barry Goggin of the Sacramento Better Business Bureau said Heng is not alone. They're taking advantage of people's knowledge of, and trust of, PG&E said Goggin. He said others are complaining too. The company was also accused of misrepresenting to consumers that contracts were simply applications, and of making false threats of mechanics liens and foreclosures. We highlighted what I would really call a dirty playbook by this particular company said Max Peltz [San Francisco ADA]. The court entered an injunction against Nguyen to stop that conduct, but Peltz said complaints he's now hearing from other counties make it appear as though the company is certainly very brazen in light of the injunction that we entered. Nguyen did not admit guilt in the case but paid a $28,000 fine.

The comment board at topix.com is very
interesting. Note the four barely coherent rants on the first page by people claiming to be company employees. Also note postings on the second page by someone claiming to be Kyle Kilby on topix.com:
Yes he [Roger or my dad] is terrible. He has only been in business for 17 years. He specializes in helping the elderly and indoor air quality issues. He has only helped thousands of customers and has always been in good standing with the license board. You are probably just some ex employee that couldn't do their job and now all you have is time and hate. You hide behind the anonymity of the internet.
I am truly sorry for your experience. We try and make each of our customers happy. We help around 200 happy customers every month. If there is still something I can do for you I am more than happy to help. You can send an email to customerservice@utilityprogram.org or reach me directly at Kyle@utilityprogram.org
I manage the yelp section and no one complained. Yelp doesn't arbitrarily take reviews down. And yes roger and mike are partners in the company. And yes will handles installs. If we are laying it out there. I have a company too. Kyle Kilby Consulting. My name is Kyle Gordon Kilby. I am also associated with the company.

Got an automated message talking about directv. I pressed one to talk to a representaive. I told them I was on the do not call list and to remove my number. The lady hung up on me. I called the number right back and it said that number was not in service. I reported them to donotcall.gov and if everyone else does the same they will get investigated.
My next step was to contact DirecTV directly to see if this call actually came from them or if it's a scam company using DirecTVs name to gather our credit card information.
DirecTV said it DOES NOT do telephone marketing which means this is an attempted identity theft. You can report this number to DirecTV by calling 1-800-860-1283 and telling them you need to report potential fraud activity.

A lady who posted on another site I read said this same number called her requesting her credit card info because they were from a credit company. Some people say the name on the caller ID shows up as Maureen Wilcox. Hope this helps!!!!
