Energy Efficiency Day 2022

The Energy Efficiency Day message is simple: “Save Money. Cut Pollution. Create Jobs.” Since the inaugural Energy Efficiency Day in 2016, this annual awareness event has been supported by hundreds of prominent organizations, companies, government agencies and others. Our goal is to share tips, tools and stories that promote the multiple benefits of energy efficiency, from lower costs to healthier homes. Energy efficiency is the cheapest, quickest way to meet our energy needs, cut consumer bills and reduce pollution. Energy efficiency is also an economic engine, supporting more than 2.3 million jobs nationwide in manufacturing, construction and other fields – most of which can’t be outsourced overseas

To celebrate EE Day this year, stop by any of our event locations on October 5th to receive your FREE Energy Saving Kit including LED bulbs, nightlights, faucet aerators, and pipe wrap. Thanks for being an UPPCO customer!

Energy Efficiency Can Save You Money

Power costs are explained in the Power Distribution Comparison illustration that demonstrates why electricity can cost more in our Upper Peninsula service area. Because the cost of electricity will not dramatically decrease, the very best thing you can do to lower your electric bill is to improve your energy efficiency.

Two factors that cause higher electricity consumption in many Upper Peninsula structures are lack of appropriate insulation and outdated appliances that use much more electricity than newer options.

UPPCO wants to help you make your home more energy efficient so you can lower your energy bills. Check out our Energy Tips to make some small changes that could add up to big savings.
