There really are small changes in our behaviors that we can make that will result in good things for the planet and our budget. Leslie will share with us Energy Efficiency seasonal tips on heating, on air filters, on lighting and programmable thermostats and a few other tips and tricks that will directly lead to less money spent on your electricity bill each month, which, in turn, leads to less consumption of energy. Leslie will also give us a sneak peak at some of the fun and exciting events TEP has planned for 2018 so we can be in the know.  And I will be sure to ask her about how planting a tree can save us money on our electric bill because Mrs. Green is all about the trees! This show made possible due to the generous support of Tucson Electric Power Company.
