GWP Urges Residents to Save Energy During the Holidays

Glendale Water and Power is reminding residents that although the holiday season is a time to celebrate with friends and family, it can also be a time of high energy consumption.
Here are some holiday season energy-saving tips from GWP:

  • Use LED holiday lights, which last longer and use about 70% less energy than incandescent light strings both indoors and outside.
  • Install a timer and set your holiday lights to automatically turn on and off at specific times.
  • In the kitchen, use the right size pot for each stove burner and check the progress of dishes in the oven by using the oven light instead of opening the door, which allows heat to escape and wastes energy.
  • Don’t fiddle with thermostats. Set your thermostat at 68° or lower for heating.
  • Seal air leaks and install additional insulation to keep cold air from getting into your house.
  • Bundle up before you reach for the thermostat.
    Smart thermostats are an excellent way to reduce electricity usage and save money. They learn your schedule, adjust the temperature accordingly, and can be controlled remotely, making them an essential addition to any energy efficient home.
    GWP is also offering holiday deals on ENERGY STAR® certified smart thermostats. For a limited time, a range of options are available to choose from, including:
  • Google Nest Thermostat for $0*
  • Google Nest Learning Thermostat for $74*
  • ecobee3 lite smart thermostat for $29*
  • Sensi™ Smart Thermostat for $0*
  • Sensi™ Touch 2 Thermostat for $89*
    You can also find exclusive deals on lighting and water-saving products at GWP’s marketplace.
