October is Energy Action Month

Montgomery Energy Connection is celebrating Energy Action Month in October, 2021, by focusing on energy efficiency. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, lighting consumes 10 percent of the total electricity used in homes. Energy Action Month is an opportunity to for residents to take proactive steps to lower their energy usage and their utility bills.

Swapping out your old incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs for LEDs @ MCPL is a great way to make your home more energy efficient. There is a limit of three bulbs per family at each event.
