"Save Energy, Save Money"
Save Energy, Save Money
Imagine if everyone in your co-op made one small change. Now, stop imagining. Flip a switch. Seal some cracks. Screw in an LED. Install a programmable thermostat and actually program it. It doesn’t take a lot of energy to save energy ... but it sure pays off. That’s the thinking behind TogetherWeSave.com, Touchstone Energy Cooperatives’ national energy-efficiency campaign.
TogetherWeSave.com features more than one dozen energy-efficiency interactive web applications linked to a virtual home tour, all designed to encourage co-op members to take energy-saving actions. Touchstone Energy TV showcases energy-efficiency videos and lets members learn more ways to lower their energy bill.
More energy efficiency resources include:
- How to Conduct Your Own Home Energy Audit + checklist (Nov. 2015 Energy Lifestyles Magazine)
- Together We Save Around the Home - Stopping Phantom Loads (HD) from Touchstone Energy Cooperatives on Vimeo.
- Use Energy Wisely booklet (PDF)
- Members wanting to take the next step in home efficiency may also contact St. Croix Electric Cooperative to request a Home Efficiency Assessment. During an assessment, a trusted third-party contractor (selected by SCEC) will visit your home to determine where changes can be made to make your home more energy efficient and help you save money (some of these suggestions may also be available for rebates). Contact member services (715-796-7000) for more information.
