Energy cost saving Information
The most cost-effective way to reduce your utility bills is to reduce your usage by installing more efficient lights and appliances, and improving the insulation level of your home or business.
We recommend investing in conservation first, then wind and solar power. Many of our customers buy a home wind system or solar power unit after they have reduced their bills as much as reasonably possible with efficiency upgrades.

In areas where wind power is not feasible, we recommend investigating ground-source heat pumps or solar power systems.
