We’d like to shoutout the AMAZING DC residents who took the pledge that topped the charts in energy savings. July is the Take Action Period where each week we focus on different areas of energy savings. Confirmed Pepco customers that took the pledge are receiving Weekly Usage Reports which allows us to understand who saved the most energy. We compared week 1 (July 1 – July 7) to week 2 (July 8 – July 14) to find out who had the greatest percentage reduction in energy usage as well as the greatest reduction measured by kilowatt-hour (kWh).
Congratulations to our Top 3 Energy Savers! Residents from Wards 8,5 & 2 had the highest percent reduction in energy savings from Week 1 to Week 2.
807 kWH!!! That's the total energy saved by the Top 3 Energy Savers from Wards 8,6 & 2. That energy savings is equivalent to reducing your time driving on the road by 1,416 miles.
The top 3 DC Residents with solar panels that took the pledge not only saved energy...they gave some back! Residents from Wards 4,1 & 4 reduced their energy use by 910%, 615% & 442% respectively.
The top 3 customers with solar panels combined to reduce their energy use by a total of 362 kWH. One customer was from Ward 1 and two were Ward 4.
