Question of the day:

Question of the day: What uses the most energy in my home?
A: Heating and cooling systems typically consume the most energy in your home, followed closely by refrigerators and clothes dryers. But don't underestimate the power of small electronics. TVs, computers, chargers and answering machines still draw electricity even if they are turned off or on standby mode.

Send a message to the EPA!

The EPA is accepting public comment on proposed new regulations which would effectively outlaw coal as a  fuel source for new power plants. The proposed regulation would be devastating to the reliability of our nation’s electric power system and greatly increase costs for all consumers. Contact CCPPD at 402-372-2463 or to send an email to the EPA urging them to withdraw its proposed greenhouse gas New Source Performance Standards rule for fossil-fuel power plants.
