Conservation Key to Cutting Energy Costs


Penn College’s Energy Conservation Subcommittee reminds the college community to make every kilowatt count: “The greenest energy is the energy you never use, because there is no zero-polluting form of energy.” Eliminating energy waste should be everyone’s responsibility as Everyday Environmentalists, the subcommittee said in the latest Green Tip of the Week. Penn Future offers energy conservation as the most cost-effective way to lower electricity bills and improve system reliability. Some strategies require little change in how we live our lives, the subcommittee said; others may include eliminating or replacing appliances or habitsin our lifestyles. Pennsylvanians have a wide range of help available through the Public Utilities Commission Web site. The weekly tip is a cooperative venture of the subcommittee (part of Penn College’s Governance system) and the School of Natural Resources Management’s Horticulture Department. Contacts for the feature are Gail B. Landers, group leader at the Children’s Learning Center and a subcommittee member, and Carl J. Bower Jr., horticulture instructor.
