It’s true; you probably go through your day and use electricity or natural gas and never really think about it. Yet, if you’re reading this right now, you’re using electricity from somewhere (and if you’re not, call me, we need to talk about your magical electricity-free computer).
So, it stands to reason that there is a month designated to think about this stuff. Since President George W. Bush proclaimed October as Energy Awareness Month in 2006, the U.S. Department of Energy has been actively observing this month to promote the wise use of energy throughout the nation. The theme for 2009 is “A Sustainable Energy Future; Putting All the Pieces Together.”
Avista is no stranger to energy efficiency, energy conservation, and sustainability. We’ve been providing clean, renewable energy for more than a century now, and today we have one of the lowest carbon footprints of all utilities in the United States.
In addition, Avista has been actively promoting energy efficiency for the last 30 years by providing energy efficiency rebates and incentives, and by providing customers with information on the wise use of energy. If you are looking for some information to get you started, check out the links below.
