COLUMBUS, OH (Sept. 22, 2016) – The Public Utilities Commission
of Ohio (PUCO) and the Ohio Development Services Agency (ODSA) are partnering
during Energy Awareness Month to educate Ohioans on how to better manage their
energy use. Throughout October, the agencies will provide ways to reduce energy
consumption and increase energy efficiency, as well as information on programs
to help Ohioans having trouble paying their energy bills.
“The PUCO encourages Ohioans to take an active role in their
energy consumption.” said Chairman Asim Z. Haque, “By engaging in how you use
energy around your home, consumers can reduce uncertainty of monthly bills and
have a positive impact on Ohio’s energy future.”
During October, Ohioans are encouraged to review how they use
energy at home and at work. Turning off the lights when you leave a room,
washing only full loads of dishes and clothes, are some of the ways to increase
your energy efficiency. Ohioans needing assistance in managing their energy
costs can visit the ODSA
website to learn more about programs that are available.
“Minor adjustments in your life can save you money and that adds
up when you’re managing a family budget,” said David Goodman, director of the
Ohio Development Services Agency.
The Ohio Development Services Agency can help Ohio businesses
and communities implement energy efficiency measures. By lowering energy usage,
businesses and communities can save money too. Program information can be found
