New DOE Campaign Encourages Consumers to "Stay Warm, Save Money"
October is Energy Awareness Month, and DOE has launched a new Web site and educational campaign, titled "Stay Warm, Save Money," in order to help consumers be more energy efficient and save on their energy costs this winter. The campaign focuses on providing simple, cost-effective, energy-saving solutions for consumers and small businesses, and although the campaign is currently focusing on energy-saving tips for the winter months, the Web site will be expanded later in the year to include tips for summer. The "Stay Warm, Save Money" Web site lists no-cost and low-cost energy-savings tips, financial assistance links, long-term solutions for saving energy, and a blog that covers energy-saving topics. Visitors to the site can also download an energy checklist and other materials to help them save money this winter. See the DOE press release; the Stay Warm, Save Money Web site; and the Energy Savers blog.
