Congratulations to this year’s winners!

Resolve to Save Energy in 2019

Still need a resolution for 2019?

Resolve to save energy! You’ll reap the benefits from this resolution all year long (and you don’t have to skip out on the bread or dessert to do it!)

Here are 3 easy ways to save energy at home:

  1. Install a programmable thermostat. By doing this, you can save an estimated $180 each year!
  2. Ditch those incandescent bulbs. These bulbs release 90% of their energy as heat. Time to switch to LEDs instead.
  3. Reduce energy used for water heating. Lowering your water heater’s temperature and install low-flow showerheads in each of your bathrooms.
