DOE's Energy Savers Web Site Helps Consumers Stay Warm, Save Money

October 02, 2008

On October 1, the first day of Energy Awareness Month, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) launched the Stay Warm, Save Money campaign on the Energysavers.gov Web site; this educational outreach campaign aims to help consumers be more energy efficient and save on energy costs. The information focuses on proactive ways to implement simple, cost-effective, energy saving solutions for both homes and businesses this winter and will expand to year-round home energy efficient tips. The site also features the Department's work to develop cleaner, more affordable, diverse, reliable and sustainable energy sources that support the President's goal to slow the growth of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 2025 while meeting increasing energy demands.

"Americans look for tools to help save on energy costs, but also to make our homes and lives more energy efficient — energysavers.gov will help us do both," Acting Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy John Mizroch said. "By using energy wisely, every American can tap the cheapest, most abundant, and most reliable source of new energy available — energy wasted everyday. Energysavers.gov is a great resource for simple, low-cost energy efficiency tips that anyone can use."

Energysavers.gov is designed to offer both low-cost and no-cost ways to lower energy costs, and includes easy energy saving tips. Energy Savers will be a year-round resource for Americans' energy needs, revised as the seasons change, with a weekly energy saving tip for consumers.

It will offer both low-cost and no-cost ways to lower energy costs, and includes easy energy saving tips, financial assistance links, long-term energy saving solutions, and a blog covering energy saving topics. Visitors to the site can also download an energy saving to-do list and other materials to help save money on energy costs while staying warm this winter.
