CHEYENNE – Taking a few simple steps to cut energy consumption could help most homeowners realize substantial savings on their utility bills, according to representatives of the Wyoming Energy Council.
Council representatives gave demonstrations on energy-saving techniques at home improvement stores around Cheyenne on Saturday as part of the inaugural Energy Conservation Awareness Day.
Tiger Adolf of the energy council said that if a homeowner were to have an energy audit conducted on their home and make the recommended changes, the energy savings would likely pay for the improvements within two years.
“If they’re done well the first time, (the changes) should be good for the lifetime of the house,” Adolf said. The council intends to hold energy conservation workshops throughout the state next year.
Replacing incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs will cut the lighting portion of a consumer’s energy bill in half, said Ainsley Thrailkill of the energy council. Entire story
