Providing reliable and affordable electricity depends not only on power generation, but also on efficient use of power in homes and businesses.

This is why Ohio’s electric co-ops are leaders in energy efficiency, continuing a tradition begun more than 40 years ago that has saved millions of dollars and thousands of megawatts. Ohio’s co-ops are always great sources for energy efficiency information, and many offer energy audits and appliance rebate programs to members.

Additionally, here are some great online tools to help you consume less energy in your home or business.
