The city of Tallahassee wants you to "Get Smart"... energy smart that is. City officials say they're encouraging people to save energy and money in a campaign called "e-plus". The campaign promotes programs like the smart bill which could save the city about 45-thousand dollars in billing costs each month.
"But from the customer's perspective, not only that, they're able to actually pay for free where in the past there was a charge if you wanted to make a check payment electronically," says Reese Goad, the Director of Tallahassee Utility Business and Customer Service.
"It will go active October 27th so we're really excited about the smart bill, and we have other programs that we have already launched that are under our e-plus," adds Sandra Manning,
Tuesday night, Tallahassee commissioners signed a pledge to be energy efficient in their own homes and lives.
