Conservation Corner – September 2022

You don’t need to be a superhero to raise your energy efficiency and lower your costs!

We have a few programs that are zero cost to you and will save you energy costs in the future. Sound too good to be true? Well, it’s true! But don’t wait too long. Supplies and time are limited!

You could be eligible for a free, web-based Nest thermostat. Nest thermostats can save an average of 10 to 12 percent on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills. You can easily program the Nest Thermostat in the app on your smartphone, and then adjust anytime you want. It can turn itself down when you leave the house, so you don’t waste energy on an empty home. The Nest also has a Savings Finder feature that looks for more ways to save, and suggests tweaks to your schedule in the app.

This is an internet-based device and sign-up is available through the website only. Not all home heating and cooling systems are compatible, but the website will help you determine that. Click the NEST link on our No-Charge Energy Efficiency programs page to learn more and to register.

We also still have some limited spots for our contractor-installed LED lighting for your whole home, at no charge to you. An Energy Efficiency Advisor will contact you to install your energy saving measures. Having all LED lights in your home saves considerable energy and costs.

To sign up with our contractor, click the LED link on our No-Charge Energy Efficiency programs page or call (888) 883-9879.

Go to our Rebates page for more energy savings and rebates.
