saved an average of 32% on a typical American home’s energy bill. And many of
the steps you can take to get those savings are inexpensive and easy to do.
But how do you know what to do to get those savings? That’s easy. Call Gary.

4 Sign up for the PVREA Green Power Program
The Poudre Valley REA Green Power Program was initiated in 1999 to allow membersthe opportunity to support renewable energy provided from wind, solar and small scale hydroelectric sources. Green power is available in 100 kilowatt-hour (kWh) blocks for only 9¢. The average home uses about 1,000 kWh of electricity each month, so for less than $1 per month you can go all green. There is no minimum contract period so you can start and stop your Green Power participation at any time. Purchasing one block of green power each month for one year has the same environmental effect as not driving a car 2,400 miles or planting a half-acre of trees.
