Energy Savings Tips

Make smart investments now and watch your savings grow exponentially year-to-year. PSO will even help you pay for it, with major, money-saving rebates.

  • Keep your irrigation equipment in good condition. Routine maintenance, tuning and lubricating can significantly improve your system’s efficiency.
  • Replace your V-belt drives. Upgrading equipment that uses those old drives can significantly reduce your power consumption.
  • Adjust the usage schedule of your equipment throughout the day to reduce run times and take advantage of off-peak hours.
  • Upgrade to high-efficiency machinery and equipment that requires less electricity to run.
    Participate in PSO’s Peak Performers, our power management program that pays you for lowering your energy usage during peak events.
  • Monitor your lighting usage. Installing timers and/or occupancy sensors on your lighting systems can make a big difference in your energy savings.
  • Moderate your heating and cooling. Adjusting the temperature just a few degrees can make a big impact on your energy costs.
  • Install programmable thermostats to accommodate multiple operating schedules.
