Our Energy, Our Future
Pressure is mounting in Congress to do something about climate change. And while political debates in Washington, D.C., may seem far away, the outcome will have a direct impact on our cooperative – and on you, the cooperative member, and other electric consumers.
Water use and electricity go hand in hand. Heating water can account for 14 percent to 25 percent of the total energy consumed in a typical home. What’s more, systems used to clean public water supplies and deliver it to homes require large amounts of electricity. If your home receives water from a well or spring, the pump also draws power. So when we use water, hot or cold, we’re also using energy.
Benefits of CFLs
Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs (CFLs) save money, use less electricity and help promote energy efficiency. But what if a bulb breaks? Is the amount of mercury in the bulb harmful? How do you clean it up safely? According to the Environmental Protection Agency, there are no serious concerns, but there are some things you should know about CFLs.
