The University of Tennessee at Martin will establish a mobile classroom about energy energy under a $147,000 USDA grant.

With winter weather comes another opportunity to save energy around the home.  In so doing, it can also help utilities conserve electricity.   Old power hungry and heat generating appliances can drive up the monthly electric bill.  Kentucky Utilities Spokeswoman Liz Pratt says it can be a sizeable cost.

“In about 70 percent of the home energy use can be used in the heating and cooling of appliances.  So, that is a significant amount of monthly energy usage going to heating and cooling appliances,” said Pratt.
