I came across this website and thought I would share the good news.If you are a customer of Virgnia Natural Gas, they are offering you incentives to conserve energy. At a minimum, you can receive a free programable thermostat for your home! Virginia Natural Gas wants you to go green, at home and in your wallet. They recently introduced a new program designed to help you conserve energy and save on your natural gas bill.
The programmable thermostat is easy to use. If you are away from home for a long stretch (even if you have pets that sleep all day like we do,they don’t notice a few degrees) you can adjust the programmable thermostat so that when you are at work you can raise or lower your indoor temperature while you are out. You can program it to start warming up or cooling down prior to you coming home at the end of your day. Please check out their website and have your account number ready to cash in on some savings! The Virginia Natural Gas energySMART program includes exciting opportunities to make it even easier for you to conserve!
You can better control your expenses by regulating your heat with a programmable thermostat. The website notes according to the U.S. Department of Energy, by using the recommended manufacturer settings, you can save up to $180 a year. I just signed up today and I am looking forward to my programmable thermostat!
