Energy Efficiency Day Urges Organizations to Save Energy and Money

On Oct. 5, 2017, a growing network of advocates, companies, government agencies, utilities and others will join to showcase the benefits of energy efficiency as part of the second annual national Energy Efficiency Day.

The message of Energy Efficiency Day is to- Save energy. Save money. Social media content will be shared under the hashtag #EEDay2017. A number of cities and counties are officially declaring Energy Efficiency Day with proclamations.

Organizations, companies, government agencies and others will promote energy efficiency through social media messaging and other content. The growing list includes cities (Chicago, Honolulu, Pittsburgh), utility commissions (California PUC), utilities (PG&E), government agencies (South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control), companies (General Electric) plus a list of nonprofit advocacy organizations working throughout the country. A full list of supporters is available here.

Energy efficiency is a way to meet our energy needs, cut consumer bills and reduce pollution. Energy efficiency is also an economic engine, supporting 2.2 million jobs nationwide in manufacturing, construction and other fields – most of which can’t be outsourced overseas. This year, EE Day offers a light bulb challenge to encourage engagement by residents and businesses alike.

Energy Efficiency Day is a collaborative effort of regional and national organizations working to promote energy efficiency, including the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), Advanced Energy Economy, the Regional Energy Efficiency Organizations, Natural Resources Defense Council, and many others.
