Energy Saving Tips

Whole-house fans help cool your home by pulling cool air through the house and exhausting warm air through the attic. These fans are effective when operated at night and when the outside air is cooler than the air inside of your home.

The City of St. Clairsville’s Light & Power Department would like to thank the ladies of the St. Clairsville Gardners Forum who contribute time, talent and financial resources to make the City festive each holiday season.

The City’s wreaths are stored in the basement of the Municipal Building. Each November, the members of the Gardners Forum gather in the basement to prepare the Christmas wreaths to stand up to the harsh elements along City streets.

The Light & Power Department crew hangs the wreaths and ribbon on the light posts in downtown, in conjunction with their work to move into place and decorate the City’s giant Christmas tree. All preparations are done in advance of the City’s Christmas parade and tree lighting ceremony.

A few seasons ago, students in the Connections program at Belmont Career Center completed a community service project for the St. Clairsville Gardeners Forum. The students placed lights in the 75 wreaths that are hung each Christmas season in the City’s downtown.

The Light & Power Department also wishes to extend its gratitude to these students and their instructor, Ed Reese.
