Energy Saving Tips for Renters

23 March 2020

We are REC – a podcast series produced in partnership with Rappahannock Electric Cooperative.

We were in the studio with Casey Hollins, Director of Communications and Public Relations for Rappahannock Electric Cooperative to talk about some energy saving tips for renters. A few of those included:

  • Set the thermostat at 68 degrees, lower at night as needed.
  • Make it a habit to change the air filters regularly.
  • Open the drapes on sunny days to allow the sun to help add warmth to the home.
  • Talk to your landlord about sealing any air leaks.
  • Replace traditional light bulbs with LED’s. They use far less electricity and last longer over time.


REC provides electric service to over 170,000 connections in parts of 22 Virginia counties. With its general office in Fredericksburg, VA, the Cooperative operates and maintains more than 17,000 miles of power lines through its service area, which ranges from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the tidal waters of the Chesapeake Bay.
