Energy Efficient

Going broke on new energy efficient appliances to save money and the environment is now a thing of the past. At the Bloomington Salvation Army, all minds were focused this afternoon on saving energy.

Area residents attended this Energy Fair looking for information to go "green." Organizers say about 100 people came out to learn how to reduce their energy usage.

"There are a lot of other things you can do to save energy that don't cost a lot of money sealing up your windows, wrapping up your water heater, turning your water heater temperature down things like that, that will save energy without really costing you money in the process," DeAnna Belz with the Ecology Action Center says.

This is the first energy fair hosted by the Ecology Action Center. The EAC is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing environmental education to McLean County residents.
