Ring in the New Year with an Energy-Efficient Resolution

We all make them— New Year’s resolutions. To kick off the New Year, Virginia Energy Sense invites you to share your resolutions by entering our Virginia Energy Sense Resolutions Sweepstakes.

As you begin to prepare for the fresh start of the New Year, consider including energy efficiency in your goals for 2012. By checking off one of the resolutions below, you can help Virginia achieve its resolution to reduce energy use by 10%:
