Three communities are coming together for a friendly competition. Beardstown, Carlinville, and Pana are all competing in the Elevate Energy Community Challenge. The community that comes in first will win a fifteen thousand dollar prize.
Field Organizer for Elevate Marisa Joyce says they have a unique way of teaching people about energy waste.
Joyce says that with the Ameren Smart Meter, customers are getting more accurate readings on their energy usage.
Joyce appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM morning show.
