The Second Energy Efficiency Day is Fast Approaching - Here's What You Can Do
1. Visit our new website and sign up. You can sign up as an individual or as an organization. As we get closer to EE Day, we'll send you more ideas on how to get involved, including fun facts to share on social media.
2. Take the Lightbulb Challenge or the Office Lighting Challenge. By taking the challenge, you agree to replace at least one light bulb with an LED. If each US household purchases just one LED bulb, consumers could save $500 million annually. Share your experience with friends and colleagues.
3. Encourage mayors/governors to officially proclaim October 5 Energy Efficiency Day. In 2016, Hawaii Governor David Ige did so, and this year Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto has already followed suit. Check the link above for a sample proclamation that you can share with your mayor and governor.
4. Create and share your own content. You can share the news about Energy Efficiency Day and the benefits of saving energy---and money---through blog posts, emails, newsletters, and social media. Tell your own energy efficiency success story with videos, photos, graphics, or other content. Or share this blog post. When you sign up on the EE Day website, we will send material you can use.
