About the Challenge
Engage in the Power Saver Challenge to reduce your household's utility bills and improve the comfort of your home! Some Power Saver households are using 40% less energy than they used to, and utility bill savings can mount up to thousands of dollars over just a few years.
There is no better time to start saving! Learn about programs that offer home energy audits at roughly 25% of their original cost, up to $2,000 in rebates for energy efficiency improvements, as well as other rebates for efficient appliances.
Whether you're a renter or homeowner, with a big or small budget, the Power Saver Challenge will help you take action. From small projects like upgrading your light bulbs to big improvements like attic insulation, the Challenge provides the how-to and motivation to move forward and save big.
How It Works
Find actions that are right for your household based on cost, potential savings, and ease of completion. Add actions you're interested in to your Actions To Do List, or mark complete actions you've already accomplished. For each action completed, you'll earn points toward your goal: 50 points to certify as a Power Saver. Certified Power Savers get recognized and entered into annual prize drawings.
Here are some additional resources that will help you get started with the Power Saver Challenge.
