BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It’s getting to be the time of year when thoughts turn from keeping cool to staying warm.

Pat Warren reports the city announces a new energy program that could save you money regardless of the weather.

Meet Captain Kilowatt.

“Reduce energy in city buildings, one at a time. That is my superpower,” Captain Kilowatt said.

Baltimore homeowner Lena Davis shares that power: to reduce energy usage in her own home with the help of a $52 million grant to expand city conservation programs like this one.

“With these lights alone, they’re so expensive and you can’t afford it and you’re getting it free. Why not want to try it?” Davis said.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced a city-wide initiative to not only expand existing programs but improve education and outreach to homeowners who may not be aware of the free services and savings available.

“I would say, `Be a part of the Baltimore Energy Initiative. You can save money, you can make your house more energy-efficient and create a more sustainable Baltimore in partnership with us,” she said.

“All this was done absolutely free,” said Eleanor Everette.

Everette is so happy with the results in her own home, she goes door to door, spreading the word to her neighbors.

“I was paying, like, $146 a month on my BGE,” she said. Now, it’s down to “$97.”

Like they say, time is money. The sooner you act, the less you may spend.
