Bozeman Hosting Energy Smackdown

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Bozeman's Office of Sustainability is challenging residents to cut down on their energy use by 10%.

As part of the second annual Energy Smackdown, the city is offering two $1000 grand prizes for people who cut the most from their NorthWestern Energy bill in a 12 month period.

They said you can simply turn down your thermostat or air dry your clothes to help reduce your bill.

Officials said people will save money, while taking a stand against climate change.

"It's the first step in curbing our impact on global warming, just trying to keep our snow deep and our rivers healthy," said Natalie Meyer, Bozeman Sustainability Director

Officials said so far only 50 people are signed up.

If you would like to sign up for the Bozeman Energy Smackdown, you have until April 16.

Just head to their website.
