The Florida Public Service Commission Supports a national "Day of Utility Service"


TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) is joining public utility commissions across the country to support a national “Day of Utility Service,” recognizing Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on January 18.

A national “Day of Utility Service,” part of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners’ current Anybody Can Serve, So Let’s Conserve campaign, helps residents learn about energy awareness and conservation measures year-round.

“I encourage Florida residents to honor Dr. King’s service-minded spirit and make January 18 a ‘Day of Utility Service,’” said PSC Chairman Nancy Argenziano.  “Anybody can save energy—at home, at school, at work.  Change a light bulb, caulk your windows, or schedule an energy audit.  These are just a few of the simple steps you can take to reduce your energy usage, save money on your utility bills, and help protect Florida’s energy future.”

This year’s Anybody Can Serve, So Let’s Conserve  campaign is hosting a 30-60-90 Day Challenge that begins January 19 in Washington, D.C.  Families from around the country will participate in a 90-day energy conservation challenge.  They will be equipped with an Energy Efficiency Toolkit and some  simple steps to conserve energy and save money on their monthly utility bills.  Their participation will also be tracked via the 30-60-90 Social Network: http://www.anybodycanserve.ning.com/.  At the end of the 90-day period, the family showing the most energy efficiency improvements will receive payment of their electric bill for three consecutive months.

Anybody Can Serve by practicing energy efficiency.  Every individual plays a role in reshaping our energy future, and we can make a positive impact by practicing an energy efficient lifestyle.  Begin on Monday, January 18, to change your energy future by choosing to become energy efficient. 

Energy conservation brochures are available on the PSC Web site at: http://www.floridapsc.com/Publications/ConsumerBrochures
