NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Before temperatures start falling, now is a good time to take advantage of one of several free Neighborhood Energy Savers workshops, offered by Nashville Electric Service (NES) and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), to help customers lower their electric bill. NES customers are learning how easy it is to make energy-saving improvements at home with simple tools such as caulk, weather-stripping and spray foam. In the past year, more than 180 households have participated in an NES Neighborhood Energy Savers workshop. The result is a combined savings of approximately 100,400 kilowatt hours (kWh) per year. The next free workshop is this Tuesday, October 8 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at FiftyForward Donelson Station, 108 Donelson Pike, Nashville, TN 37214.
