St. Lucie County Extension Offering Home Energy Savings Program in Fort Pierce
Fort Pierce - Tuesday September 6, 2022: Energy costs have risen significantly for residents across the Treasure Coast. While the local utility groups work diligently to adapt to the current national energy crisis, there are proactive steps that homeowners and renters can take to help reduce the impact.
UF/IFAS Extension St. Lucie is partnering with Fort Pierce Utilities Authority to offer a class to help residents learn ways to reduce their electric and water bills through conservation and reduction. There will be four opportunities to attend at various locations in Fort Pierce. Each session will focus on electricity savings from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and then water savings from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Register in advance for the session that suits your schedule. Participants will receive a toolkit of energy and water reduction items to use in their homes.
