Sign up for Class on Saving Energy

If you want to lower your monthly energy use and be entered to win a $100 credit on your next electric bill, sign up for Benton REA’s upcoming energy conservation class Thursday, February 28, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Benton REA West Richland Community Room (6095 W. Van Giesen St.).

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

Attendees will learn about the role of appliances, lighting and other sources of energy use 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 $100 and two $50 bill credits will be given away in a drawing at the end of the class.

The class is free to Benton REA members. Nonmembers may attend for $20. Only 35 seats are available, so register quickly to reserve your seat by contacting Eric Miller at or 509-786-8265.
