Energy efficiency

One may think that conservation and energy efficiency are one in the same; at Great River Energy we see them as separate and unique strategies that end up with the same result – a reduction in your electric usage and a reduction in your electric bill.

Energy efficiency is using a technology to reduce your energy consumption and save you money. Energy efficiency doesn’t require you to do more with less or change your life style in some way, but if you do you’ll save on your energy bill!

Examples of energy efficiency include:

-Installing LEDs or CFLs
-Installing, programming and using a programmable thermostat
-Purchasing EnergyStar appliances
-Applying energy efficient technologies in your home or business doesn’t have to crimp your lifestyle, but it will help to reduce your energy bills
