This October 2nd, you can add your voice to a vital conversation nationwide and show your support for programs that cut energy waste and avoid power plant pollution. You can also learn about locally available energy efficiency programs and services.

Utilities invest about $8 billion per year in energy efficiency programs to help their U.S. customers use less energy. See some reasons why utilities help businesses save energy. You can take advantage of these programs that will also help you take steps to consume less, lower your energy bills, and cut carbon that harms our health and the climate.

Your power company may offer rebates when you purchase more efficient appliances and equipment. Residents and businesses often can apply for discounts on smart thermostats, air conditioners, furnaces, or water heaters through utility-sponsored offers. Energy audits, insulation, and air sealing are essential components of many efficiency programs. Free programs help low-income customers enjoy the benefits of efficiency and reduce their energy burden. Altogether, these incentives help save on energy bills and also promote energy efficient consumer choices.

So check with your local utility on their website or with a phone call — and also join us in celebrating Energy Efficiency Day year-round. Here’s how you can get started:
