BPU Celebrates National Energy Efficiency Day (Oct 4)

BPU Celebrates National Energy Efficiency Day (Oct 4)

(KANSAS CITY, Kan.) — The Kansas City Board of Public Utilities (BPU) is taking time to promote national Energy Efficiency Day to its customers and the community on October 4, 2023. This coordinated, nationwide effort is intended to showcase the benefits of energy efficiency, highlight its ability to help meet our nation’s energy needs, assist customers by saving on utility costs, and reduce pollution.

The educational movement is supported by a national network of companies, government agencies, advocacy groups, and utilities – including BPU. Reducing the energy used by homes and businesses benefits everyone – especially energy customers. The average household saves almost $500 annually due to efficiency standards that apply to new appliances such as dishwashers, refrigerators, and water heaters, alone.

BPU is a designated Smart Energy Provider (SEP), recognized for demonstrating a commitment to and proficiency in energy efficiency, distributed generation, and environmental initiatives that support the goal of providing safe, reliable, low-cost, and sustainable electric service. The utility promotes numerous programs and efforts geared toward efficiency and conservation including Home Energy Audits/Assessments and Weatherization Assistance Programs, among other things. BPU has also been a member of Heartland Utilities for Energy Efficiency (HUEE) since 2002 – one of the only local utility collaboratives in the nation working together on residential energy-efficiency issues.

To learn more about these efforts, check out the BPU website at www.BPU.com, or follow them on social media.
