Energy Efficiency: Tips to Save on Your Electric Bill

Public Power Week, October 6 through 12

Public Power Week
Did you know you get your electricity from a public power utility? That means you and your neighbors own the utility and it's ran by the Town of Lyons (local government). As a public power utility, the Town is celebrating Public Power Week, Oct. 6- 12, along with more than 2,000 other community-owned, nonprofit electric utilities that collectively provide electricity to 49 million Americans.

To mark this week, here are a few tips on how to save energy and money in your home, while caring for the environment:
  • Plug energy leaks with weather stripping and caulking, and be sure your house is properly insulated — you can save up to 20 percent on heating/cooling bills, and make your home more comfortable.
  • Clean or change filters regularly. A dirty furnace or air conditioning filter will slow airflow and make the system work harder to keep you warm or cool.
  • Install a programmable thermostat to save up to 10 percent on cooling and heating costs.
  • Wash clothes in cold water. Heating the water in a washer uses 90 percent of the energy used to wash clothes. According to Energy Star, by switching to cold water, you can save $30-$40 every year.
  • Use energy-efficient light bulbs including halogen incandescents, CFLs, and LEDs to reduce energy use by as much as 80 percent.
  • Turn off all lights, appliances and electronics not in use. Better still, use a power strip and turn off devices and lights that are not in use to cut standby power, to save $100 a year on your electricity bill.

US-36 Rumble Strip Construction

Rumble Strips Construction

Beginning October 7

On October 7, rumble strip construction is scheduled to begin along US-36, in Larimer and Boulder counties. The work will include installation of center line rumble strips and restriping all existing center lines from Estes Park to north Boulder, with the exclusion of the Town of Lyons (limits).

Motorists can expect 5- to 10-minute delays during construction. The project's normal working hours will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and will take approximately two weeks to complete.

Rumble strips are an effective measure of reducing head-on collisions, cross-over crashes, and run-off-the-road crashes.
