Montgomery County Continues Activities to Celebrate October as ‘Energy Action Month’

October is Energy Action Month and Montgomery County’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will be out in the community well into November trying to protect and improve the environment and help residents lower their energy costs.

Events coming up include “LEDs and Libations” at which the County’s Department of Alcohol Beverage Services (ABS) will help distribute energy-efficient light bulbs. The next event will be from 4-7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19 at the Clarksburg Liquor Store at 12051 Chestnut Branch Way in Clarksburg.

DEP is hosting and supporting dozens of Energy Action Month events throughout October, including the following:

On Wednesday, Oct. 23, from 8-11 a.m. Silver Spring Civic Building in Silver Spring, join Montgomery County DEP and the Montgomery County Green Bank for a hands-on event for commercial and multi-family building owners and property managers. DEP also will be sponsoring four “Energy Roadshows” in conjunction with Energy Action Month.

Department of Environmental Protection Director Adam Ortiz is offering these helpful energy-saving tips.
