  to exchange incandescents for CFLs.

  them lucrative fundraisers for groups.

 Schools make $3 off

Matching equipment rebates
 Utilizing Tri-State rebate money.
 Most N.M. co-ops are taking
  advantage of rebates.

  different rebates available.
Weaning consumers off propane
 Concentrated
  effort by some
  N.M. co-ops to
  replace propane
  heating with
  electric thermal
  storage (ETS)
  technology.
Weaning consumers off propane
 CDEC also is
  studying drainback
  solar water heating
  systems made by
  King Solar Products
  of Oregon.
Time of use rates
 Most N.M. co-ops utilize time-of-use
  rates.
 Some N.M. co-ops, such as Kit Carson
  Electric in Taos, offer season rates for
  part-time residents.
 CDEC has found that the TOU rate
  has made consumers more
  conscientious of their usage, not just
  when they are using electricity.
 Educating with information
 Most N.M. co-ops don’t have financial
  resources to offer broader incentives
  to promote energy efficiency.
 Much of that burden rests with the
  consumer.
 But there is still the need to educate
  consumers on being energy efficient
  and presenting the options available.
Educating with information
 Our Energy, Our Future
  and the Straight Talk
  national campaigns
  have been excellent
  opportunities to
  incorporate energy
  efficiency and
  conservation
  messages.
Educating with information
 Condensing national
  publications to fit
  local co-op budgets.
