For Immediate Release
WASHINGTON - October is Energy Awareness Month; a good time for consumers to learn more about how to reduce their individual energy usage to save money and protect the environment.
To help customers learn how to use energy wisely, Pepco offers a free, interactive tool on its Web site, pepco.com, called "My Account." The Web-based feature enables customers to create their own personal energy profile after completing a few questions concerning the size of their home, its number of residents, the age of their appliances and other energy-related information - all of which is used to help customers determine how they can reduce their energy use and costs.
Pepco launched "My Account" more than three years ago and since then, tens of thousands of customers have logged on to learn how to save energy at home and compare their usage to similar homes in the area.
Here is how to use "My Account:"
· To register, customers will need a recent Pepco bill to obtain information such as their account number,
· Go to www.pepco.com,
· Click "My Account;"
· Register to use the tool to start saving energy and money.
While the use of "My Account" is limited to Pepco customers, the company also offers a variety of tips for saving energy and money on its Web site in the "Our Energy Future" section.
Pepco, a subsidiary of Pepco Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: POM), delivers safe, reliable and affordable electric service to more than 750,000 customers in Maryland and the District of Columbia.
