Energy Awareness Month 2005 Encourages Smart Energy Choices

August 31, 2005

  Energy Awareness Poster: Not in Use? Turn Off the Juice!

October is Energy Awareness Month, and this year's theme, "Not in Use? Turn Off the Juice!" continues and reinforces the messages of the Department of Energy's Smart Energy Choices awareness campaign. To spread the message, FEMP is developing outreach materials that remind federal employees to switch off unnecessary lights; unplug equipment that drains energy even when not in use; use efficient Energy Star® products; and walk, bike, or take public transportation to work. Please call the EERE Information Center at 877-337-3463 to request a limited supply of Energy Awareness Month materials. Posters and other items will be available to order after September 12, 2005. A Power Kit CD ROM with high resolution graphics for creating and printing your own materials is available to order now. FEMP has also designed a number of animated energy awareness messages that promote the campaign themes and can be attached to E-mail messages as a simple, cost-free way for agencies to spread the word to employees and others. The animated GIF files will be available to download from the FEMP Web site.
