Public Service Commissioner Brent Bailey Recognizes Energy Efficiency Day


In recognition of the 5th annual national Energy Efficiency Day on Wednesday, October 7, 2020, Mississippi’s Central District Public Service Commissioner Brent Bailey is joining regional and national organizations, businesses, utilities, universities and individuals in promoting energy efficiency – the cheapest, quickest way to meet our energy needs, cut utility bills and reduce pollution.

“On September 22, I signed a proclamation proclaiming today as Mississippi’s 1st annual Energy Efficiency Day,” Commissioner Bailey said. “I encourage citizens to join us in supporting our clean energy goals and moving toward more energy efficiency now and in the future in Mississippi.”

Smarter energy use means we don’t have to generate or consume as much energy to meet our needs. Many people don’t realize that Mississippi has already made significant, forward-thinking investments in energy savings measures. We would like to highlight some of those who continue to be proficient in practicing energy efficiency in our state:

“There are many ways you can practice energy efficiency in your own home and business,” Commissioner Bailey said. “Reducing the energy used by manufacturers, homes and businesses benefits everyone– especially energy bill-payers. The average household saves almost $500 yearly thanks to efficiency standards that apply to new appliances such as dishwashers, refrigerators and water heaters, alone.”
