Florida Public Service Commission Partners with Local Organizations to Promote Energy Conservation in a Pre-Earth Day Celebration


TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) will premiere its conservation video, Turn It On; Turn It Off, at 11 a.m., Thursday, April 13, at the Mary Brogan Museum of Art and Science, in recognition of Earth Day.  Local elementary school students will be special guests for the premiere.

Guest speakers will include PSC Chairman Lisa Polak Edgar; Tallahassee Mayor John Marks; Chucha Barber, Executive Director of the Brogan Museum; and Principal Alan Cox and his “starring cast” from Chiles High School in Tallahassee.

Chairman Edgar will discuss how children can help conserve energy.  Chiles High School drama students star in the video and will be on hand to share what they have personally learned through this experience.  The students originally performed the play for several Leon County schools during Energy Awareness Month in October 2005.

“We’re pleased that the Mary Brogan Museum will feature our Turn It On; Turn It Off video in its ongoing Energy Exhibit that will be seen by many visitors,” said Chairman Edgar.  “We also look forward to promoting our conservation program in schools throughout Florida as a result of our partnership with WFSU and Chiles High School.”

She added, “Even small changes help, and we all can work together to manage our families’ energy costs.”
