Energy Savers Workshop Attendance Up 70 Percent

Energy Savers Workshop Attendance Up 70 Percent

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Twenty-six households attended last month’s Neighborhood Energy Savers Workshop held at the Donelson-Hermitage YMCA. This free workshop offered by Nashville Electric Service (NES) and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), was the first in the summer series of workshops being held in June, July and August.

June attendance was up 70 percent from 2013 with the successful launch of NES’ summer “Be Cool” campaign, urging customers to attend a workshop to learn easy, energy-efficient improvements because “high energy bills are lame, but you can be cool.”

There are only two summer workshops left, and one of the remaining workshops is this weekend.
