A few days ago we received the official Governor Proclamation for #EEDay2017 in South Dakota.
This proclamation serves as support and a reminder to South Dakotans everywhere that smarter energy use contributes to a sustainable future.
Read our South Dakota Governor Daugaard's Executive Proclamation below, and join in on energy efficiency efforts.
State of South Dakota
Office of the Governor
Whereas, Energy efficiency is the art of getting the same or better performance using less energy – all while cutting utility bills for residential, business, and industrial customers; and,
Whereas, Reliable, affordable energy is vital to our economic prosperity and energy efficiency is most productive and cost-effective way to meet our energy needs; and,
Whereas, Implementing clean energy policies and programs helps boost economic opportunities and job creation while continuing to move toward a sustainable future; and,
Whereas, Smarter energy use reduces the amount of electricity we need to power our lives, which helps avoid power plant emissions that can harm our health, pollute our air, and warm our climate; and,
Whereas, A nationwide network of energy efficiency groups and partners has designated October 5th, as the nation’s second annual Energy Efficiency Day; and,
Whereas, Together the people of South Dakota can continue to contribute to our sustainability efforts by learning more about energy efficiency and practicing smarter energy use in their daily lives:
Now, Therefore, I, Dennis Daugaard, Governor of the state of South Dakota, do hereby proclaim October 5, 2017, as ENERGY EFFICIENCY DAY in South Dakota.
