Celebrate Energy Efficiency Day 2020

Dubuque County, Iowa- In recognition of the 5th annual national Energy Efficiency Day (#EEDay2020) on Wednesday, October 7, 2020, Dubuque County Energy District is joining regional and national organizations, businesses, utilities, universities, and individuals in promoting energy efficiency – the cheapest, quickest way to meet our energy needs, cut utility bills, and reduce pollution.

Energy efficiency is also an economic engine, amassing a U.S. workforce of nearly 2.4 million by the beginning of this year. Ranging from professional services to manufacturing, installation, and construction, these good jobs are local and cannot be outsourced.

Smarter energy use means we don’t have to generate as much power to meet our needs. Many people don’t realize that Dubuque County Energy District has already made significant, forward-thinking investments in energy efficiency, benefiting our community and beyond.

Reducing the energy used by manufacturers, homes, and businesses benefits everyone – especially energy bill-payers. The average household saves almost $500 yearly thanks to efficiency standards that apply to new appliances such as dishwashers, refrigerators and water heaters, alone.
