Summer is the best time for get-togethers with family and friends. So, if it’s your turn to host, don’t miss out on energy savings opportunities that are as close as your deck or backyard. —Editor’s note: This article by Enoch Lenge, an energy-efficiency spokesman for Eversource, is from his blog on the Eversource.com website. It seems a bit late in the summer for these kinds of energy-saving projects, but you can certainly still make changes this now, save a bit and save more next year — especially if you have a swimming pool and especially if you heat it. And you’ll be doing your part to help the environment.
