It’s Talk Energy Week!

When it comes to energy, there’s always lots to talk about—and Talk Energy Week is a great time to do it.

Let's Talk Energy is a national program that aims to enhance energy awareness among Canadians to contribute to a more sustainable energy future. The Talk Energy Week website features helpful resources for teachers, interactive games for both children and adults, and other educational information to help those in the Fredericton area and beyond better understand energy.

One of the best tools for New Brunswickers who want to become more energy-efficient is NB Power's Home Energy Report. This free service provides great insight! Get monthly reports on your home's energy use and compare it with similar homes in your area. You'll see how your home's energy use changes over time and across seasons, and you'll discover real-world ways to save energy—and save money.

Every day Canadians use different forms of energy for their comfort, convenience, and enjoyment. Electricity allows us to heat and cool our homes, and power the lights and appliances that help us work, play, and live. Here are some simple ways to save money on energy at home:

  • Invest in a heat pump—perfect for staying warm in the winter and cool in the summer
  • Consider installing programmable/smart thermostats
  • Get in the habit of turning lights off when you leave a room
  • Fit external lights with a motion sensor
  • Use energy-saving light bulbs such as LEDs

As always, don't hesitate to contact a licensed and insured electrician such as Current Solutions Electrical to help achieve your energy-efficiency goals.
