Shedding Light on Solar

The solar power and renewable energy sectors have grown tremendously over the last ten years. With promises of lower energy bills, tax incentives, and increased property value, going solar is an attractive option for homeowners. Many homeowners can enjoy these benefits, but some companies take advantage of unsuspecting consumers. Before signing a contract, here are a few considerations and questions to ask!

1. Smart Thermostats

Space Heater Safety Tips & Tricks

Small space heaters are typically used when the main heating system is inadequate or when central heating is too costly to install or operate. In some cases, small space heaters can be less expensive to use if you only want to heat one room or supplement inadequate heating in one room. They can also boost the temperature of rooms used by individuals who are sensitive to cold, especially elderly persons, without overheating your entire home. Space heaters commonly run on electricity, propane, natural gas, and kerosene.

Gobble Up Thanksgiving Energy Savings

Thanksgiving has become a favorite American holiday as family and friends reunite to feast and give thanks. Unfortunately, the cooking and extra guests in your home can contribute to an annual increase in energy use due to a usual drop in temperatures, lights staying on longer, and appliances operating more frequently. 
Here are some energy-saving tips which can help lower the unwelcome tradition of higher energy bills following Thanksgiving celebrations:

Shift Your Power & Save

Smart Thermostat

In mid-May, Hendricks Power will launch a new Wi-Fi thermostat option as part of PowerShift, a program that offers rebates for residential members to shift their energy use to times when electricity is less expensive. The typical American family spends 20 percent of its budget on energy. As energy demand increases, such as peak times during extreme weather conditions, costs for power plants to produce electricity can rise dramatically. PowerShift can help you shift your energy use to lower-cost times helping everyone save energy and keep costs low.
