Our TogetherWeSave campaign has expanded the resources available at TogetherWeSave.com
A new application on energy efficiency for manufactured homes features the façade of a typical modular house. Users can click on 15 different points in and around the house to show energy-efficiency tips specific to the unique needs of a manufactured home.
The Energy Savings Home Tour now includes a feature that shows co-op members how proper landscaping can improve a home’s energy efficiency. Users learn that strategic placement of trees and shrubs can save up to 10 percent on energy bills. The feature links to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Savers web page for more information.
Together WeSave.com has also adjusted existing applications that reflect warmer summer temperatures. The two thermostat applications- within the Energy Savings House Tour and the stand-alone application under the “Energy Saving Applications” tab – now advise users to raise their thermostats a few degrees to save on cooling costs. Similarly, the ‘Adjust the Blinds” applications now advise users to lower window coverings and raise savings.
