Second annual Energy Efficiency Day on October 5 urges Americans to “Save Energy. Save Money.”

Smarter energy use means we don’t have to generate as much power to meet our needs. Energy efficiency offers us the most bang for our buck, helping stretch resources to make our homes, schools, and businesses more comfortable and efficient. There’s a lot of untapped potential, which is why October 5 is so important — Energy Efficiency Day.

A collaborative effort between hundreds of government agencies, businesses, utilities, and individuals working to promote energy efficiency, EEDay started last year, with hundreds of municipalities participating.

Here are five ways you can save energy and money at home.

1. Make the Switch to LEDs

With LEDs as low as 95 cents per bulb at DCSEU Partner Retailers, it’s never been easier to upgrade and save. You can save approximately nine percent of your home’s annual energy costs by switching five of your home’s most frequently used bulbs with ENERGY STAR certified LEDs. Ready to make the switch? Join the lightbulb challenge online here.

2. Seal Leaks

On average, heating and cooling account for almost half of your home’s energy consumption. You can save up to 20 percent on heating costs by caulking windows, sealing leaks around chimneys and recessed lighting, and sliding draft guards under your doors.

1016 H Street, NE

From Liberty Tree:

“It is with very mixed emotions we announce that we have sold The Liberty Tree. Every second of our time as part of this community has been a joy, but sometimes an offer comes along that you just can’t turn down. The bonds we have formed with our H Street family are truly special and we can’t thank you enough for sharing the last 8 years of your lives with us. We are eternally grateful for all the love and support you’ve shown us along the way. Hopefully we’ll get to see you at least one more time before we close this chapter and our doors at the end of October.”

Liberty Tree was an OG H Street 2.0 spot opening back in March 2010. RIP. Stay tuned for more info when known and pour some out for Liberty Tree they were phenomenal.

“Dear PoPville,

I found this letter today in my mailbox (lower Petworth) without an envelope. I assume the whole street/block has received the same, since my home doesn’t exactly look special in any way, but I haven’t asked around yet. Maybe I’ve just heard about too many DC scams, but my first thought was definitely “yep, they want to burgle me.” Setting aside the @icloud email address and the lack of official letterhead, it’s already October, and I would think scouting privately owned locations and preparing them for shooting would take longer than less than one month?”

Or maybe they just need to increase the hourly rate? Of course maybe it was stolen.

Thanks to M for sending:

“I’m sending a photo of a lime bike I spotted at my gym’s locker room. I understand I am not supposed to take photos at a locker room but I couldn’t help this time! As you can see, the person who used this bike left some belongings in the basket so no one could claim the bike…”

hahaha it really is amazing. This series is slowly surpassing last Christmas tree in town as my personal favorite. Many more good ones in the queue.
