Vehicles for Change

Connexus Energy supports the growing electric vehicle (EV) market and wants to work with members who buy an electric vehicle to make sure you get the most affordable rate to meet your charging needs. Our time-of-day rate offers members the most hours of charging in a week, while still providing an electric rate at almost half-off the normal residential rate.

Merry, Bright, and Efficient Holiday Lighting

Decking the halls doesn’t need to take a toll on your energy bill, especially if you decorate with energy-efficient LED light strands.

  • LED strands are 70 percent more efficient and last 10 times longer than the age-old standard bulbs.
  • You can get the look of cozy lighting with LEDs. Just look for “warm white” on the label.
  • Unlike older light strands, LEDs give off virtually no heat, making them safer for kids and pets.
