How Your Family Can Celebrate Energy Action Month 2017 with FPL

Before I get into this post, can we give a round of applause to our friends at Florida Power & Light Company (FPL)? This content may be sponsored, but they did a fantastic job getting power back in Boca Raton post-Hurricane Irma. I’ve never appreciated my A/C and pool pump more! Having electricity is honestly a cause for celebration. And after everything local families have been through this summer, I’m proposing a virtual toast. Join me in celebrating Energy Action Month with FPL!

What is Energy Action Month? Besides an excuse for some (chilled by your working refrigerator) champagne, Energy Action Month was established to:

  1. Increase awareness about energy consumption
  2. Encourage energy-saving actions

If you’ve read any of my previous posts in partnership with FPL, you know they are all about energy-saving tips! And as we ease into fall, here are some lesser known ones that apply to us Floridians.

Ask Alexa

If you own an Amazon Alexa, be sure to download/enable the new free FPL skill from the Alexa Skill store. Once you do this, you can request tips from Alexa to help your family save energy and money.

For example, you can say, “Alexa, open FPL” and then try out voice commands like:

  • How can I lower my energy bill?
  • What’s your energy-saving tip of the day?

How neat is that?
