Dominion Energy Launches Energy-Saving Program in Columbia
Customers benefit from cost-saving measures
CAYCE, S.C. – Dominion Energy hosted a kickoff event in partnership with the City of Columbia at the Busby Street Community Center to inform residents of the Neighborhood Energy Efficiency Program, which offers free energy-saving products to eligible customers. Approximately 1,300 residents in the north Columbia area were invited to learn more about the program that runs through March 2020.
The Neighborhood Energy Efficiency Program offers:
- LED light bulbs
- Kitchen faucet aerators
- Electric water heater wraps and insulation for water pipes
- Advanced power strips
- Adjustment of electric water heater temperature
- HVAC air filter replacement
Dominion Energy started the Neighborhood Energy Efficiency Program in 2013 to provide eligible neighborhoods with energy education and the direct installation of energy-saving improvements for residential customers at no cost.
“Actively meeting our customers in their communities and providing education empowers them to make informed decisions about how they use energy,” said Gerald Freeman, program manager of Dominion Energy South Carolina’s Neighborhood Energy Efficiency Program. “We’re excited to work with our Columbia customers to help them save money and create a more energy-efficient community.”
By taking advantage of the energy-efficiency tips, rebates and incentives associated with EnergyWise programs, Dominion Energy customers have reduced electricity usage by more than 797,000 megawatt hours during the last eight years – that’s enough energy to power 67,463 homes for a year.
Dominion Energy offers a comprehensive portfolio of EnergyWise programs that work together to increase overall energy efficiency and reduce energy usage.
