Pac 5 Energy
Five County Program Saves Energy and Money
Thurston Energy has partnered with the Economic Development Councils of Grays Harbor, Mason, Lewis and Pacific counties to bring energy efficiency awareness and services to those counties. Each program (collectively called Pac 5 Energy) has its own flavor and focus, based on the needs of the host community. All five programs work closely with their local utilities to promote awareness of existing utility programs, and seek to provide additional energy efficiency services to homeowners and businesses as needed. The focus of the Pac 5 Energy programs is to create jobs with local contractors by driving investments in energy improvements.
The programs are all performing stellar work in their communities, including:
In Mason County, the majority of the costs for four large projects were picked up by Mason PUD3 rebates, allowing employers’ energy savings to pay the projects off more quickly.
