Regular readers of Electric Consumer may be perplexed by a few things:
- Why haven’t you gotten your Electric Consumer this month?
- Why is Tipmont writing articles in a new magazine you got in the mail?
- Is Tipmont so popular that they are now being syndicated?
Now that spring is just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to tackle a few DIY efficiency projects for your home. The good news: You don’t have to be an energy expert to do this! Here are three projects you can do now to start saving.
Thanks to a generous grant from Tipmont’s EnviroWatts program, Wabash River Enhancement Corporation (WREC) and its partners have distributed over 140 rain barrels throughout the Greater Lafayette community. The rain barrels benefit the community in two ways.
January 2019 was colder and snowier than is normal for our area. Our actual average temperature was several degrees colder than the January average according to WLFI-TV meteorologist Chad Evans. Bone chilling artic air blanked our area January 29 – 31 with wind chills as low as -50. These wind chills were the lowest since January 1994.
These cold temperatures cause an increase in your energy usage, often more than in the hot summer months. The reason is temperature variance.
“Modern industrial” is the term used to describe the style
of the Bryant — the Christodoulakis family’s fifth (and
newest) restaurant, after Christos New City Grill, Red Seven and Café Literato. There are exposed pipes, subway tiles
and textured walls, but also curved banquettes, barn-wood walls and plaidshirted servers. Then there’s a giant three-dimensional mosaic of wooden cubes over the main dining room. Even the dishware is a mix-and-match.
Lafayette Urban Ministry (LUM) is officially solar powered thanks in part to a $10,000 EnviroWatts grant. On Jan. 14, Lafayette Urban Ministry held a “Flip the Switch” ceremony celebrating the completion of its solar power project.
It’s cold. You need soup. Not from a can. Not as an excuse to cast-off New Year’s Eve party leftovers. Soup that’s handmade, hearty, robust. And not just warm. No, no. Face-of-the-sun temperatures to fill your stomach, warm your bones, get the blood going, start 2019 off right.
It’s been nearly a
year since Tipmont’s
voted to authorize
and delivery of fiber
internet, video and
voice services. In
that time, we’ve completed a tremendous
amount of work toward realizing the
vision that you created for us. Your
feedback through surveys, letters, phone
calls, and in person was key to the
board’s decision. Affordable high-speed
broadband, in particular, is an essential
service that so many of you need.
Congratulations to Tipmont right-of-way coordinator Eric Summerfield on becoming an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Board Certified Master Arborist.
