Want to live green and save money?

Your quality of life is important and we want every kilowatt hour you use to be efficient for your pocketbook and the planet. Check out these hot tips on how to be more energy efficient.

TIP #1:




Consider insulating your hot water heater to save 7-16% annually on water heating costs.

Coming soon: On bill financing for Heat Pump Water Heaters.  These super efficient models use heat pump technology by moving heat from one place to another instead of generating heat directly. This makes them two to three times more efficient compared to conventional electric resistance water heaters. Interested? Email for more info.

TIP #2:

It’s always a good reminder to unplug electronics that draw a phantom energy load. The best thing to do is to plug all your electronics into a power strip that you can switch on and off. Headed out of town? Switch off all your power strips. So easy!
