TEXASISHOT CAMPAIGN AIMS TO HELP TEXANS SAVE BILLIONS
Focused on energy efficiency as a way to control electric consumption and lower electric bills, Texas consumers now have a one-stop shop for tips, tools and information to conserve energy — and save money in the process — with the launch of www.TexasIsHot.org.
Texas leads the nation in energy production and consumption. Increased energy efficiency is the easiest option to lower electric bills, help the environment and lessen our nation’s energy dependence. But, “energy efficiency” can sometimes sound intimidating because people think it will cost them something. The TexasIsHot campaign wants to change that perception by providing Texans with simple tips, easy to use tools and real-time information to decrease their energy consumption — and save money in the process.
Simple solutions can help Texas homeowners save between 20 and 30 percent on their electric bills, an average savings of between $1,700 and $2,500 over five to seven years. A 20 to 30 percent savings for every Texas family amounts to nearly $2 billion in annual statewide savings.
The TexasIsHot campaign includes a comprehensive website with the latest energy efficiency news, quick
and easy energy efficiency tips, and interactive tools that show how small changes make a big difference.
TexasIsHot.org will also serve as a forum for Texans across the state to share energy saving stories and
