PSC to Join Tallahassee's Award-Winning Neighborhood REACH Program for Energy Action Month

TALLAHASSEE — Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) Chairman Ronald A. Brisé will join Tallahassee Mayor John Marks on Wednesday to help weatherize a utility customer’s home in the Mabry Manor neighborhood for October’s Energy Action Month.

The hands-on demonstration event, designed to encourage energy efficiency statewide, will showcase the City of Tallahassee’s nationally recognized and highly successful Neighborhood REACH Program.

Chairman Brisé and Mayor Marks will accompany a City crew during its scheduled door-to-door neighborhood visit to install energy-saving products, seal leaks, and offer hands-on energy efficiency education.  As part of the City’s Energy Smart Plus (e+) initiative, Neighborhood REACH helps eligible utility customers save energy and money by making their homes more energy and water efficient—all at no cost to the customer.

Each year, the U.S. Department of Energy sponsors Energy Action Month to promote smart energy choices, while also highlighting economic and job growth, protection of our environment, and increased energy independence.  The PSC observes Energy Action Month annually with events to promote energy efficiency and conservation.

The Neighborhood REACH visit is scheduled for the following time and location:

Wednesday, October 31, 2012
10:30 a.m.
Mabry Manor Neighborhood
Near the intersection of Eisenhower and Ridgeway streets
Tallahassee, Florida
