Conservation Classes

Your best path to lowering your energy bill is information and education.

In the spring and fall, Benton REA hosts classes discussing the various ways members can lower their electricity consumption and their power bills.

The topics covered in the class include efficiency rebates and various ways a member can increase their homes energy efficiency. The classroom setting is a good opportunity for members to learn about general conservation, but also provides members a chance to ask specific questions about their unique situations. Classes are announced in the Ruralite magazine and in your member newsletter included with your monthly bill.

West Richland Community Room (6095 W. Van Giesen St.) 

From 6 - 7:30 p.m. 

If you want to lower your monthly energy use and don't know where to start, Benton REA's conservation class is for you.

Every registered attendee will receive a graph depicting their home’s energy use from the past three years. Eric Miller, Benton REA’s energy adviser, will help members interpret their home’s current and past energy use.

Attendees will also learn about the role of appliances, lighting and other home energy-users in the home. Other topics include the importance of a well-insulated, reasonably tight home and selecting a proper heating and cooling system as well as the significance of keeping them in good operating order.

One Lux/Geo Wifi Thermostat will be given away at the end of the class. It is valued at $144 plus the cost of the energy you'll save using it.

Call 509-786-8265 or "Contact Member Services" to register.
