October is Energy Action Month, an event meant to encourage energy savings through efficiency and conservation.
SC Energy Hour
On October 6, 2021, a growing network of advocates, companies, government agencies, utilities, and others will showcase the benefits of energy efficiency during the 6th 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 SC Energy Hour! On October 6th from 10:06 AM – 11:06 AM, the Energy Office would like for South Carolinians to celebrate SC 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 home or building, to hosting a virtual talk about energy-saving benefits. Other ideas for #SCEnergyHour are:
- Sign an Energy Action Month pledge (PDF)
- Watch an energy-efficiency related video
- Play energy-saving bingo
To help promote SC Energy Hour, take a photo of what you or your organization is doing and share via social media with the hashtag #SCEnergyHour.
