(KFOR NEWS January 10,2020) Friday, Jan. 10, is National Cut Your Energy Costs Day.
Lincoln Electric System is taking the opportunity to help all LES customers start the new year and new decade with a new emphasis on energy-efficiency.
Eliminating wasteful electricity use in our community is important because it helps to reduce overall electrical demand, translating to lower carbon emissions and lower electric rates.

During the winter months, many customers might rely more heavily on gas than electricity. However, when it’s cold outside, there are still some simple ways to eliminate waste, keeping energy costs down. Here are 10 suggestions from your energy experts at LES:
As a customer-owner of your local public power utility, you and your family have a vested interest in eliminating energy waste and helping to cut energy costs. With the community’s help, LES can continue to provide affordable energy in a safe and reliable way.
