Use Less Electricity Today, Save in the Future (10/1/2012)
October is National Energy Awareness Month
In honor of National Energy Awareness Month in October, Sturgeon Bay Utilities is encouraging residential and business customers to make smart energy choices that support the economy, protect the environment and increase energy independence.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Americans are expected to use 20 to 50 percent more electricity and gas over the next 25 years.
By making modest changes, American households, businesses and governments could save 10 to 30 percent on their energy bills, reduce the need for additional energy infrastructure and keep future costs down, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, according to the EPA.
“Encouraging energy efficiency is a responsibility that SBU takes seriously,” said Jim Stawicki, General Manager. “Our residential and commercial customers have access to programs that help with the cost of installing new energy-efficient appliances, lighting and other improvements.”
SBU recommends the following simple steps toward a more energy-efficient home or business.
