Two 4-Hers from Jones County put a magnet on the map, marking their electric co-op. Touchstone Energy provides 4-H t-shirts as part of their sponsorship of the 4-H Exhibits Building.
Electric co-op members stopped by the display in the Bruce L. Rastetter 4-H Exhibits Building sponsored by the Touchstone Energy® Cooperatives of Iowa at the Iowa State Fair Aug. 10-20.
Located inside the 4-H Exhibits Building on the south end of the fairgrounds, the display showcased all Iowa electric cooperatives on a map of Iowa. Magnetic “markers” were placed on the state map to show co-op membership.
Fairgoers registered to win a Nest Learning Thermostat. This latest technology programs itself by learning the temperatures you and your family like and then automatically following those preferences. The thermostat turns itself down when nobody is home to save energy. You can connect the thermostat to Wi-Fi to control temperatures from your phone, tablet or laptop.
Additional energy efficiency and savings information was displayed in the booth.
