The Better Bargain

Months have passed withhydroelectric shortageand the City of Sitka Electric Department has warned the community that the risk of having to use supplemental diesel fuel to run the town's functions is high. In order to let this message sink in a bit further, Utility Director, Christopher Brewton, made this graphic meant to encourage electric users to switch to oil by using a visual that most people can relate to.

This simple graphic shows electric users that using an oil heater is over 2X as efficient as gaining electricity through the extremely inefficient diesel generators.Brewton hoped to encourage those with duel heating systems to switch since the diesel surcharge will add to every electric user's monthly bill.
