Save & Benefit

People demonstrating the Power of One® in their community.

Save Energy and Benefit Your Community is designed to engage community stakeholders and organizations in identifying and implementing energy-saving opportunities that provide economic and environmental benefits and at the same time provide for a worthwhile cause.

These events show how people who live and work in communities can make a difference. They show people demonstrating the Power of One® in their community to improve quality of life and to work toward a common goal. It begins with you!
