A Wish for #EEDay2017 – from folks who work in EE

Posted for AESP

On October 5, 2017, a network of advocates, companies, government agencies, utilities and others will join together to showcase the benefits of energy efficiency as part of the second annual national Energy Efficiency Day. Learn more about this event at

AESP and Energy Central are excited to bring more public awareness to EE by joining in the collective effort to make Energy Efficiency and #EEDay2017 a national trending topic on October 5.

Here’s how you can participate, and stand to win a $200 gift basket filled with goodies, including a $100 Visa gift card, courtesy of AESP and Energy Central:

1. Anytime between September 28 and October 5, 2017, make a tweet on Twitter or post as a comment under THIS AESP-Energy Central Energy Efficiency Community post

2. Tell us what you think the industry needs, to be more energy efficient:

“As an #AESP_EEprofessional” I wish_____________ on “#EEDay2017”

Examples: “people would change out inefficient bulbs,” “small businesses would ask their utilities about EE programs,” etc.

3. Make sure that your posts contain these two hashtags #AESP_EEprofessional and #EEDay2017. There are no right or wrong answers, just tell us what you think as an EE insider. The winner is picked at random from all posts containing the above mentioned hashtags. Irrelevant, offensive or inappropriate posts are disqualified.

4. You can post as many times as you want; and each unique post will be considered as an entry. The more posts you make, the more chances you have to win.

As an #AESP_EEprofessional meter billing should reflect that NEC loads are based on volt-amperes (VA), rather than watts (W) on #EEDay2017


As an #AESP_EEprofessional I wish more people below povery line in various countries including India get atleast  one LED 100W bulb light per household which can improve their living standards and safety on #EEDay2017

Comment from our Facebook page - CFL bulbs are already out. LED bulbs are the cool bulbs now - no - literally. They don't get hot, and that's how they save so much energy. And you can get them at Costco for a very good price.
