Don’t Let Sweltering Summer Days Put a Sizzle on Your Utility Bills

The heat is on. As warm spring days turn into sweltering summer heat don’t let your utility bills sizzle your budget. Saving energy means saving money. We have all heard of some strategies like turning out lights in unused rooms and turning down the thermostat when we leave home … but there is so much more that can be done. The Durham County Cooperative Extension Service will host a free energy conservation lunch-n-learn workshop. Bring your lunch on Thursday, June 19 from 12-1 p.m. to Conference Room B in the new Durham County Human Services Building located at 414 E Main Street to learn more about strategies you can use in any season that will:keep-cool-dog
