Pink Panther Blog Provides Information on Energy
Keeping a paw on the pulse of energy conservation, the Pink Panther has been named chief energy officer and has received his very own energy blog from Owens Corning so that he can keep consumers informed of hot button issues and energy-saving tips and products.
Headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, Owens Corning is a member of the National Council of the Housing Industry — The Supplier 100 of NAHB.
Inaugurated last month on Earth Day, the interactive blog is available at saveenergy.owenscorningblog.com and can be accessed on Owens Corning’s energy microsite, which also provides instructions on easy insulation projects, an insulation project calculator and the Department of Energy’s R-value calculator.
“For 25 years, the Pink Panther has helped Owens Corning educate consumers about saving energy and the need to insulate their homes,” said Dave Brown, chief executive officer of Owens Corning. “We couldn’t be more excited to broaden his role in a contemporary way. The beauty of the Panther is that the character helps deliver information in a way that consumers respond to — which benefits our collective need to reduce energy usage throughout the world.”
Currently, only 20% of homes built in the U.S. before 1980 are insulated to national energy-efficiency standards, often due to a lack of knowledge about energy-saving projects, according to Owens Corning.
In addition to calendar postings on various energy-related events, the blog provides answers to frequently asked questions about attics, crawlspaces, noise control, walls and more general issues.
