Wouldn’t it be great if you could make a huge impact on the energy savings of a large group of people or even your entire town? Your efforts could change the lives of hundreds or thousands of people by helping them save money, reduce green house gases and improve the environment. There are actually quite a few ways that you can be an energy hero to your community or group. Large numbers of people want to save money, go green and begin an energy saving program, but they just aren’t sure how to go about doing it. Here’s how you can help them get started…
The process by which energy is sold to customers who have joined together to buy a product is called aggregation. This type of program allows large groups to lower the annual amount of money they spend on energy. When aggregated, groups buy large blocks of energy, they will often have the opportunity to negotiate energy price discounts or multiple providers will be bidding for their business. Electricity and natural gas are two of the more popular resources that are purchased using the aggregation method. Energy aggregation is available to entire towns, buildings, communities and large groups. You can get more details by contacting a representative at ChooseEnergy.com.
Energy Conservation Kits
These kits contain a variety of items that will help people save energy and lower their monthly energy bills. For example, an energy monitor enables a person to keep track of the energy being used by all of their appliances to determine if buying a new model could provide them with energy savings. Energy efficient CFL(compact fluorescent light) bulbs provide significant energy savings and can last as much as 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs. Weatherization products in these kits help seal any drafts that drain energy from the heating and cooling systems as it works to maintain a comfortable environment in your home. Water efficient Faucet aerators and showerheads lower hot water usage(a major form of energy waste). Energy saving kits can be customized in order to fit the specific needs of the user. Special programs can be arranged to distribute the kits, through your town or local utility, to each resident’s home. Check out energy saving kits and programs available at ConservationMart.com.
Carpooling is one of the oldest and most effective ways of saving money and helps the environment at the same time. If you live close to someone you work with, it makes sense for the two of you to drive in to work together. By splitting the price of the commute between both of you, you can save $100s to $1000s a year on gas, depending on the distance of your drive. If you drive on toll roads or have to pay for daily parking, your savings could be even higher. Some large cities have special carpool lanes, reserved for vehicles that have a minimum of two passengers for use during peak travel times. If you don’t have someone to share a ride with, consider starting a Vanpool at Enterpriserideshare.com.
Community Owned Solar
With Community owned solar, commercial and residential utility customers completely own solar panels that are fully maintained in a centralized, local site. Customers are credited on their electric bills for the clean power that is produced. Customers reduce pollution and receive discounted power rates without the need to install the solar panels on their own rooftops. Solar arrays are a smart financial decision that make local renewable energy easy. Get started by visiting SolarCity.com
