It’s summer — so it can be a battle to keep utility costs low with the need for air conditioning and washing all those clothes after family vacation! Jennifer Herber and Mary Zambrano of Austin Energy and Austin Water stopped by Studio 512 with some tips on lowering your bills this season.
Jennifer and Mary want to remind you about accessing utility apps to help you keep your utility costs down.
In addition, Austin Energy and Austin Water always have rebates! Rebates help customers save on energy and water efficiency upgrades that you might be making this summer.
And if you’ve turned up the thermostat, but you’re feeling uncomfortable, there are ways to get cool outside of your house! Jennifer and Mary suggest people visit places like local libraries and community centers to keep cool.
