28th Annual CASA Charity Golf Outing

Lykins Energy Solutions and Co-Sponsors, DigiMax Signs and Copper Blue Restaurant of Milford, come together every year to have a charity golf outing in September.
Last year the golf committee raised $75,000.00 for CASA. This year they raised $73,000.00.

CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate. CASA gives an abused child in the foster system/court system an advocate to check on their well-being, their progress, check in on them at school and be in touch with their daily lives. The CASA advocate also goes to court for them or with them and speaks on their behalf based on what is in the best interest of that child. Neither a social worker, nor an attorney could give the child that kind of time or attention. CASA is a crucial component for an abused child especially with the growing heroin epidemic.

Lykins is proud to have raised over $660,000.00 for CASA over the last 18 years. Lykins wants to thank all of their customers, vendors and employee’s for participating and giving their hearts, time and money for their golf outing. Without them none of this would be possible.

Winner of Free Heat for a Year

Kristen Burton from Monfort Heights has won free heating oil for a year! January through March of 2015, Lykins Energy Solutions ran a free heat for a year campaign.  They sent out registration information directly to homes, advertised the campaign online and had a registration box at the Cincinnati Home and Garden Show.  They had over 2000 registrations for either $1,000 in Propane or $2,000 in Heating Oil.  The winner, Kristen Burton, was drawn on April 1st 2015.

I WON!  I never win anything, so when I first read the email from Lykins that I won the free heat for a year I just couldn’t believe it!  A few months ago I was online searching for a new provider for our heating oil.  I came across the Lykins website and entered the contest, it payed off!  I am so excited that we will not have to worry about heating cost this coming winter.  I am looking forward to being a forever customer of Lykins.  I am so glad I found them!  Thank you so much!

PUCO Offers Utility Tips for Small Businesses

Last week, the PUCO offered 6 tips to help manage small-business utility costs.  Check them out below!

  • Pay attention to your bills: Reading and understanding your bills can help you detect problems early on.  If you receive a bill that seems too low or too high, contact your utility company.  It may be a sign of a faulty electric or natural gas meter, and getting the problem fixed can save you from overpaying or paying too little over a long period of time.
  • Control the temperature: Lowering your thermostat in the winter and keeping the air conditioning at a reasonable temperature in the summer can result in a significant savings on your heating and cooling bills.  Having an efficient heating and cooling system will also ensure you are using your electricity and natural gas most efficiently.
  • Know your energy usage: Conducting a simple energy audit can help you find ways to conserve energy and discover places where you may be wasting energy.  You can find a company to conduct an energy audit for you, or look for tools online to help you do the audit yourself.
  • Understand the charges: When you get a telephone bill, check to make sure you are being charged for the correct number of telephone lines and other services.  If you see a charge for a service you did not sign up for, contact the telephone company.  It may be a sign of slamming or cramming on your telephone account.
  • Look for energy efficient appliances and equipment: Many large and small appliances have models available that are ENERGY STAR approved for energy efficiency.  Although they may cost a little more, you will save on energy costs over time.  You can also replace incandescent lighting with ENERGY STAR compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs or light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs to increase the efficiency and the life of the lighting for your business.
  • Research financial opportunities for energy efficiency investments: There are a variety of state and federal loan and grant programs to give businesses incentives to install energy efficient and renewable energy technologies.

The PUCO offers a variety of information to help small businesses understand their bills and conserve energy.  For more information, contact the PUCO at (800) 686-7826 or visit their website here.
