Commissioner Brent Bailey Recognizes Energy Efficiency Day
Mississippi Public Service Commissioner Brent Bailey of the Central District announced the recognition of Energy Efficiency Day 2021 today, October 6, in the state of Mississippi.
At a special meeting on September 29, upon a motion put forth by Commissioner Bailey, the Commission adopted a Proclamation recognizing October 6, 2021, as Energy Efficiency Day in Mississippi.
“Energy Efficiency Day is a daylong national campaign to increase the public awareness and education on energy efficiency by highlighting the urgency of energy-saving efforts to lower bills, reduce emissions and create jobs,” Commissioner Bailey said. “We urge the residents of Mississippi to learn more about energy efficiency and to apply smart energy practices in their daily lives.”
The national 2021 Energy Efficiency Day message is: “Save Money. Cut Carbon. Breathe Easier.” Since the inaugural Energy Efficiency Day in 2016, this annual awareness event has been supported by hundreds of regional and national organizations, businesses, agencies, utilities, universities and individuals. Energy efficiency is an economic engine, supporting more than 2.3 million jobs nationwide in manufacturing, construction, and other fields.
“It's always a great idea for energy customers to save energy, not just on Energy Efficiency Day, but all year long,” Commissioner Bailey said. “There are many ways to practice energy efficiency in your own home and businesses and we can all work together to cut energy waste for long-term economic benefits.”
