Conservation Tips

The Wells Hydroelectric Project is a tremendous asset for Douglas County PUD customers. It provides clean, renewable, low-cost hydropower to our area. Even though the power enjoyed in Douglas County is among the least expensive in the nation, it should not be wasted. Here are some things you can do to reduce your consumption of this precious resource.

  • Raise your thermostat by two degrees to reduce your cooling system load.

  • Clean or change air conditioning filters regularly. Dirty filters cause air conditioners to work harder and use more energy.

  • Remove dust from the coils of your refrigerator and freezer so they operate more efficiently.

  • Close your blinds during the heat of the day and open your window during the cool evening to give your air conditioner a rest.

  • Turn off heat producing indoor lights and home computers when not in use. Turn off unnecessary outdoor lights.

  • Fire up the barbecue grill to move cooking outdoors.

  • Adjust your dishwasher so dishes dry without heat.
