The City of Evanston is participating in the Nicor Gas Energy Efficiency Community Challenge with the goal of reducing community energy usage. By enrolling new participants in one of six existing Nicor Gas programs, Evanston will raise up to $25,000 in prize money for a building retrofit for one of our local non-profits. Also, the first 100 residents to sign up will receive five FREE Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs (CFLs) for your participation.
Here’s a very easy way for you to participate;
- Sign up for ENERGYBUZZ today here>>>. ENERGYBUZZ is a free, online tool that helps you track your energy use to save money and earn rewards for the energy-efficient choices you make.
