Now that children are heading back to school, it is a good time to do some teaching yourselves. Show them how to be responsible adults by using energy wisely. Remind them that everything we do uses energy: heating our homes, lighting a room, cooking a meal, using the computer. Each day we all seem to need more energy. That is why energy efficiency is so important. Here are a few ideas for starters:

 

Your cooperative does a pretty good job in keeping the power on. But storms, lightning, animals, automobile accidents and the like can cause an occasional power interruption. A portable generator can come in handy for those rare times. 

Here are some items to consider before making a purchase for a generator.

 

Central Electric Cooperative (CEC) is conducting an aerial inspection of its system beginning in September and continuing throughout the month. 

Members may see a helicopter flying at a low altitude or hovering directly over electric lines. 

This inspection is part of an ongoing effort to enhance service reliability for members. 

Thank you for your cooperation. 

Central Electric Cooperative's (CEC) Appliance Rebate Program will officially end on Sept. 1, 2015, due to funding depletion. Our initial attempt to offer members financial help in becoming more energy efficient was a huge success. We are anticipating offering it again in 2016.

 

Energy Star Certified

Rebates are available for the following Energy Star qualifying appliances:

Members always ask what they can do to save money on their electric bill without spending a fortune. There are some common sense approaches like shutting off lights when you leave the room, and generally, turning off what you really don't need, especially when you are leaving the house for an extended period of time. These sound so simple, but try them and see the savings add up.

 

We still have a lot of summer cooling days ahead, so there is time to save energy and money for vacation. Here are some quick tips:

 

Home Humidity

Monitor your home's relative humidity  in the summer. If it consistently stays  in the 60 percent range or higher, ask  your HVAC technician about lowering  your central air conditioning unit's indoor fan speed. Continue to use exhaust fans in both kitchen and bath room areas.

With hot weather finally back with us, pools are starting to get a workout.  Here are some quick tips to save you money while enjoying your pool.  

 

Humidity is the number one cause of summertime discomfort. Air conditioners and dehumidifiers are the best way to remove it. Both are costly to operate. Here are some ways to mitigate humidity levels that help dehumidifiers and a/c units to work less.
