Saving energy at home

After completing a corporate energy audit for Aflac, offering personalized tips to reduce the insurance company's energy usage at work, Georgia Power went one step further and extended that education to Aflac employees as well. The power company's outreach program provides advice on using energy wisely, including tips and tricks that can add up to significant savings.

In this video, energy-saving experts at Georgia Power speak to Aflac employees about what they can do to make a difference in their power bills, and give one lucky employee a complimentary home energy audit to identify the areas in which she can improve.

"Energy reduction is very important at Aflac because it's the right thing to do, and it also saves money," says Alfred Blackmar, VP of Facilities and Green Committee Chairman. "We're looking to do things efficiently and for the least amount of money that we can so we can deliver more value to our policyholders."

Charlie Moon, Energy Efficiency Program Manager at Georgia Power, recommends that you start by setting your thermostat to 78 degrees in the sumer, using CFL or LED light bulbs, and setting your water heater at 120 degrees.
