Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency

Saving energy starts at home! Your home. Every member uses electricity differently based on their lifestyle. The choice to use electricity more efficiently is yours to make.


The first step to saving is always investigating where you are spending your energy dollars now. NWEC has tools that can help!

  • Kill A Watt Monitors are available for loan from our office and all the public libraries in Williams and Defiance counties. This device records the usage and cost of individual appliances in your home. It may be time to upgrade an old appliance or unplug it when it is not in use.
