Celebrate Earth Day!

What better way to celebrate Earth Day this month than to take a closer look at your energy use habits? You can take charge of your energy consumption with a few small changes. Look for tips in the pages of Texas Co-op Power magazine or online at www.samhouston.net.

At Sam Houston Electric Cooperative, we’re proud to be doing our part by leading the way to a cleaner energy future. We’re expanding the use of hydropower and harnessing opportunities to generate electricity with biomass technology.

East Texas Electric Cooperative, Sam Houston EC’s generation and transmission cooperative, was proud to bring the Woodville Renewable Power Project online in late 2014. The economy-boosting facility is capable of producing 50 megawatts of clean energy by converting wood chips into renewable, carbon-neutral power.

April 22, 2015, is Earth Day. Since 1970, Earth Day has been an annual reminder of how important it is for us all to be good stewards of our planet. The past four decades have seen amazing advancements in energy efficiency and in our ability to generate cost-effective renewable power.

Help us celebrate Earth Day. Come by and visit any Sam Houston EC location April 22nd, and receive a free CFL light bulb—while supplies last.
