You Can Save Energy

Join the PowerSleuth and learn a few simple things you and your family can do to save energy.  Every single one of us makes a difference; our efforts count.  Take action! Flip off the light switch when you leave the room; switch appliances completely off when not in use; put on a sweater and slippers when it's cold rather than turning up the thermostat; turn off the water when you brush your teeth and when you shave; walk, ride a bike, or carpool to school - get involved; it all adds up!
