TECO ties in political puns and energy saving tips

Tampa, FL-- The Tampa Electric Company (TECO) acknowledges that it is election season, and that the races are "heating up"! 

They have provided cutomers with tips to "cool down" and "shed light" on political topics-- all while being energy efficient. 

Here are their tips: 

 

  • Feel like voters are being kept in the dark? Replace your traditional incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) and save about $30 in electricity costs over each bulb’s lifetime. CFLs use 75 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs.
  • Tired of politicians’ hot air? Maximize the use of your clothes dryer by drying full, consecutive loads, to take advantage of residual heat inside the drum. Better yet, use a clothesline.
  • Recording the debates? Be sure to turn off your digital video recorder (DVR) when not in use. DVRs continue to use energy, even when not recording your favorite political banter.
  • Feeling flush from all the analysis of voter surveys? Run your ceiling fan. Fans cool people, not furniture, so be sure to turn it off when you leave the room.
