CAYCE, S.C. (Oct. 31, 2018) – SCE&G experts held a workshop at the Colleton Museum and Farmers Market Oct. 30 to inform Walterboro residents of the Neighborhood Energy Efficiency Program which offers free energy-saving products to eligible customers.
The program runs through February 2019 and provides qualified customers with energy assessments, education and direct installation of energy-efficient improvements.
The Neighborhood Energy Efficiency Program offers:
- LED light bulbs
- Kitchen faucet aerators
- Electric water heater wraps and insulation for water pipes
- Advanced power strips
- Adjustment of electric water heater temperature
- HVAC air filter replacement
SCE&G started the Neighborhood Energy Efficiency Program in 2013 to provide eligible neighborhoods with energy education and the direct installation of energy-saving improvements for residential customers at no cost.
“Our goal is to meet our customers in their communities and provide them with helpful information and the tools they need to make informed decisions about how they use energy,” said Gerald Freeman, program manager of SCE&G’s Neighborhood Energy Efficiency Program. “We’re excited to work with our Walterboro customers to help them save money and create a more energy-efficient community.”
By taking advantage of the energy-efficiency tips, rebates and incentives associated with EnergyWise programs, SCE&G customers have reduced electricity usage by more than 650,000 megawatt hours during the last six years – that’s enough energy to power 48,255 homes for a year.
SCE&G offers a comprehensive portfolio of EnergyWise programs that work together to increase overall energy efficiency and reduce energy usage. For more information about SCE&G’s EnergyWise and energy-efficiency efforts visit: sceg.com/en/energywise-and-save.
