Earlier this summer, Sam Houston Electric Cooperative communications specialists Rachel Frey and Chad Simon were joined by Tammy Winstead, member service representative, to share energy efficiency information at Oak Shade Baptist Church, in Liberty County.
“We discussed our website and phone app as well as many money-saving tips on how to reduce electrical consumption for residential consumers,” Winstead said.
Oak Shade Baptist Church’s senior adult ministry received 101 Ways to Save booklets and viewed energy efficiency demonstrations related to LED lights, weatherstripping and ductwork. Members can call the Co-op at 1-800-458-0381 if they would like to receive their own copy of the energy savings booklet.
“This group was very engaged, and many shared that they enjoyed the presentation and efficiency demonstrations,” Winstead said. “This presentation was for a friendly group who was eager to learn how to cut costs on their electric bills.”
Winstead shared her personal experience of reducing her own electric bills. By making several changes around her home, she has saved an average of $60 per month over the past two years.
“It is very rewarding connecting with our members face to face,” Winstead said. “I enjoy helping members understand their energy usage and money-saving tips and how to utilize our website and app.”
