Have an energy efficient idea for your home?
Blue Line Innovations, maker of the PowerCost home energy monitor, is sponsoring a video contest for energy efficiency—with five entries winning a free PowerCost Monitor.
Participants just need to:
- Think of an energy saving tip for your home.
- Make a short video.

The five winning videos will be decided by voters who view
www.youtube.com/user/powercostmonitor and comment on their favorite submission.
You can read contest rules and regulations here.
A PowerCost Monitor uses a senor attached to home’s electrical meter to read the home’s total electricity usage and report the data wirelessly to a small display monitor. The systems start at about $110. Blue Line Innovations says that just making small energy conservation changes can mean up to 18 percent in energy savings.
