(CMR)Energy Cayman, the Ministry of Commerce, Planning and Infrastructure’s energy efficiency public education campaign, has launched a series of free DIY energy audits to help people in the Cayman Islands save money whilst saving energy.
Three audits have been produced; one aimed at creating savings around the home, one for businesses, and a third for children who want to become energy superheroes by saving energy.
The DIY energy audits are easy to follow room by room assessments that help people understand their energy usage and reveal where energy efficiency improvements can be made.
They show how much energy individuals use each day and how to prevent wasting energy and money in the future, with simple to follow checklists, tips, and tricks. Kristen Augustine, National Energy Policy Coordinator, said,
“We have created distinct DIY audits for three key community groups as we all have a part to play in energy efficiency… We hope that this can help every member of our community to start making savings today.”
Minister of Commerce, Planning and Infrastructure Joseph Hew said over 800 entries were received for the Home Energy Efficiency Competition that ran in conjunction with the Caribbean Utilities Company.
“This just highlights the fact that we have a huge number of people within our community that want to be energy efficient and save money while saving energy. For those that didn’t win the competition, we wanted to ensure that we could provide tools that would also allow them to start making savings,” Hew said.
Energy Cayman is the Ministry of Commerce, Planning and Infrastructure’s 12-month public education campaign, which aims to embed energy efficient knowledge and good practice into the Cayman community.
This has been launched to help meet the National Energy Policy goals, which includes 70% of electricity generation from renewable sources by 2037.
