We’re Here to Help You Save

Stearns Electric Association is here for you, and given the challenging times we’ve all experienced the last few months, we would like to share some information and ideas to help you save energy and money.

Summer is a great time to conduct an energy audit of your home and identify ways to boost energy efficiency. Understanding how your home uses energy can help you determine the best ways to modify energy use and keep more money in your wallet.

An energy audit is one of the best ways to determine how energy efficient your home is. An audit can also identify areas for potential energy savings. We have several qualified energy auditors in our local area. Be sure to hire a professional who will conduct a thorough audit of your home.

If you’d prefer to do an energy audit yourself, try ENERGY STAR®’s online audit. Visit, then enter “home energy yardstick” in the search box to get started. But keep in mind, an online audit won’t be as thorough as an in-home audit.


Did you know you can monitor your energy use daily by logging into SmartHub?

SmartHub is easy to navigate. You can view your usage and weather trends by day, month or even hourly! You can also compare your energy use year over year.

Stearns Electric also offers many load control programs and rebates to help you save money and energy during peak demand. Visit our website at to learn more about our heating and cooling, water heating, and commercial and agricultural programs and rebates.

Lastly, if you have recently purchased a new ENERGY STAR®-rated appliance or product, make sure you are taking advantage of any special offers or rebates that are available.

As your trusted energy advisor, we’re here to help. If you have questions about your bill or additional ways to save energy, please let us know. We’re only a click or phone call away.
