On the first Wednesday of October each year, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources joins local governments, universities, organizations, corporations and utilities to promote Energy Efficiency Day. Energy efficiency means using less energy while providing the same, if not better service, and can carry strong economic benefits, with more than 39,000 energy efficiency jobs in Missouri it 2022. Many of these jobs were in the traditional heating, ventilation and air conditioning technology-application area and the construction industry sector.
The goal for Energy Efficiency Day is to share information that promotes the many benefits of energy efficiency, which include cost savings and healthier homes. The department would like to help you identify ways for you and your home to become more energy efficient and save money. Everything from no-cost actions to long-term energy saving actions can help save you money over the long term, reduce energy use and have positive environmental impacts. You might be surprised how little you need to do to save money.
