OceanBased Perpetual Energy Is All About National Energy Efficiency Day October 7, 2020

National Energy Efficiency Day

OceanBased Perpetual Energy, which is working to create clean energy just by using the powerful force of the Gulf Stream current just offshore near South Florida, is celebrating National Energy Efficiency Day on October 7, 2020!

Because power generated by OceanBased creates renewable energy for a full 24 hours, it’s not only one of the most efficient forms of energy on earth, but can help fill the energy storage gaps in the traditional power grid that ebbs and flows during the day, making it a truly unique alternative fuel source derived solely from Mother Nature!

Energy Efficiency Day (the first Wednesday in October – this year scheduled for October 7, 2020)  is a collaborative effort of dozens of energy efficiency advocacy groups around the United States, including the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), Advanced Energy EconomyAlliance to Save EnergyNatural Resources Defense Council, the Regional Energy Efficiency Organizations and many others (see full list below).

The Energy Efficiency Day message is simple: “Save Money. Cut Pollution. Create Jobs.” Since the inaugural Energy Efficiency Day in 2016, this annual awareness event has been supported by hundreds of prominent organizations, companies, government agencies and others. Our goal is to share tips, tools and stories that promote the multiple benefits of energy efficiency, from lower costs to healthier homes. Energy efficiency is the cheapest, quickest way to meet our energy needs, cut consumer bills and reduce pollution. Energy efficiency is also an economic engine, supporting more than 2.4 million jobs nationwide in manufacturing, construction and other fields – most of which can’t be outsourced overseas.

We hope you’ll share your own energy efficiency success stories on October 7.  Please remember to use the hashtag #EEDay2020 on all your online posts!

Here’s a comprehensive list of Energy Efficiency Day’s organizers:
