Free seminar on lowering summer electric bills May 18
Hot summer temps don’t have to mean high electric bills. Polk-Burnett Electric Cooperative is offering a free energy seminar Thursday, May 18, 5:30 to 7 p.m., to help co-op members boost energy conservation, cooling and comfort in their homes.
“Lowering your electricity use through conservation and energy efficiency will help lower your summer electric bill,” said Todd Schulte, Polk-Burnett’s member services manager.
Seminar participants will learn tips and techniques to improve energy efficiency and lower home energy costs.
“We’re very excited to demonstrate our SmartHub app that helps people track their home’s electricity use from computers, smart phones and tablets,” said Schulte. “SmartHub can help you take control of the energy you use and the money you pay for electricity.”
Seminar participants will also learn about co-op rebate programs on Energy Star appliances and lighting, home performance testing, geothermal heating and cooling systems, and other rebate programs available from the cooperative.
Last year, Polk-Burnett gave out $106,090 in energy-efficiency rebates, and helped members save 818,093 kWhs of electricity. Learn how you can get a co-op rebate in 2017 at Polk-Burnett’s energy seminar May 18. All in attendance will receive a Low-Cost, No-Cost Home Energy Savers booklet and an energy-efficient LED bulb.
Polk-Burnett’s free energy seminar on lowering summer electric bills will be held at the co-op office in Centuria, 1001 State Road 35, on Thursday, May 18, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
