17As prices soar across the country, tips on cutting costs when and wherever possible have become valuable information.

With that in mind, Fayetteville's Public Works Commission is hosting its Power and Water Conservation Expo at Skyview on Hay, Friday, June 24.

The Expo is a symposium dedicated to giving citizens "the power to save" through helpful tips, demonstrations, a panel of experts and giveaways.
Though this is the Expo's eighth year, it is the first in-person meeting since 2019 due to COVID-19 precautions. The event coincides with downtown Fayetteville's 4th Friday event to take advantage of the built-in audience and capitalize on an opportunity to reach as many people as possible.

Open from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. to ensure everyone, no matter their schedule, can come to learn about the many ways to conserve energy and save money — the Expo speaks to the service provider's desire to educate and empower their customers.

"We wanted to create an event that could highlight our services as well as give information and tools designed to help people save," said Carolyn Justice-Hinson, PWC's communications and community relations officer.

"We have so many helpful programs that people just don't know about."
Stating that most people don't think about their utilities until the bill comes in the mail, she sees the Expo as an essential educational tool. She hopes it offers some perspective on what it takes to run a reliable utility service.

For nearly 12 hours, the Expo will offer no shortage of opportunities for people to ask questions and learn the ins and outs of services necessary for day-to-day life.
The Expo will feature PWC linemen there to discuss power outages, customer service reps will be available to answer billing questions, and specialists will offer demonstrations on new features of the service, such as the Online Energy Resource Center tool.

Those in attendance can look forward to a few giveaways with prizes that stay on message. Spray nozzles and washers that help conserve water inside their water hoses to LED lightbulbs are just a few goodies people can expect.

Whether a customer of PWC or some other utility provider, Justice-Hinson feels the importance of energy conservation and how to save money is something from which everyone can benefit and therefore encourages everyone to stop by and learn what they can.

"We hope as many customers come as possible, but utility usage is universal, and conservation is valuable for everybody."
And as for the best way to save on those utility bills, Justice-Hinson told Up & Coming Weekly that it doesn't take much.

"These days, saving everywhere you can is so important. You don't have to make huge adjustments to save money. That's what's great about this Expo; you can pick up practical tips to manage the cost of electricity and water. We hope people will take the time to come out and learn and ultimately save."

This event is free and open to the public. Skyview is located at 121 Hay St. in downtown Fayetteville.
