Memphis Light, Gas and Water's Green Initiative Reports provide a summary of "green initiatives" - those customer programs and internal activities designed to increase energy efficiency and environmental awareness, reduce energy waste and improve air quality through lower power generation emissions. It can be argued that most of the actions performed by MLGW employees have green benefits, so this report may expand to cover other programs and services in the future.
Many of these activities will boost the local economy through increased household discretionary income, increased business profitability and increased business opportunities for companies in energy improvement fields. Actions also will slow local peak electric demand, helping TVA control operating expenses and thereby controlling electric rates.
MLGW is delighted that this report addresses an ever-expanding scope of customer programs and initiatives as the utility, the energy industry, customers and the community increase their focus on green issues. Whether your definition of “green” is saving money, protecting the environment or improving operational performance of your home or business, MLGW has at least one program or service that can assist! We invite you to join us, your neighbors and local businesses and organizations to “go green.”
