Did you know as part of Holland’s 40-Year Community Energy Plan, we are looking to reduce the amount of energy we all use?  As of January 1, 2015 the City of Holland is competing with 49 other communities around the country for $5 million in the Georgetown University Energy Prize (GUEP).  GUEP is a national competition that aims to dramatically improve America’s energy standing; and we want your help to educate the community about the importance of energy efficiency.  Holland’s team created five SUPER tips to help community members save money and help us win $5 million and CHANGE!  To see more information about the SUPER Tips and view our Public Service Announcements, please follow this link.
