Governor McMaster has proclaimed October as Energy Action Month, an event meant to encourage energy savings through efficiency and conservation. To further encourage energy reduction in our state, the Office of Regulatory Staff - Energy Office (Energy Office) will hold the first ever South Carolina Energy Hour October 2, 2019 from 10:02 - 11:02 AM!
During October, South Carolinians are encouraged to review how they use energy at home and at work. The checklists below can be used during Energy Action Month and throughout the year to take action and help save energy.
On October 2, 2019, a growing network of advocates, companies, government agencies, utilities and others will showcase the benefits of energy efficiency during the 4th annual nationwide Energy Efficiency Day campaign. As part of Energy Efficiency Day, the Energy Office is encouraging public and private entities to take part in the first ever South Carolina Energy Hour! On October 2, 2019 from 10:02 AM – 11:02 AM, the Energy Office would like for participating organizations to celebrate South Carolina Energy Hour by actively reducing energy consumption or learning more about how to reduce energy use in the state. This celebration can range from turning off lights in your building to having a professional come into your organization to talk about energy-saving benefits. Other ideas for #SCEnergyHour are:
- Complete an audit of your classroom or building
- Sign an Energy Action Month pledge (PDF)
- Watch an energy-efficiency related video
- Play energy-saving bingo
To help promote SC Energy Hour, we’d love for you to take a photo of your organization’s event and share via social media with the hashtag #SCEnergyHour. Also, make sure to tag @SCEnergyOffice so we can share as well!
