Don't be haunted by your energy bill. Our four quick tips could help you save energy and money at home while banishing witches, ghosts and goblins!

National Energy Action Month happens every October. On, we mark the occasion with Energyween -- a week-long celebration of energy efficiency tips, tricks and treats to save energy at home as cooler weather lurks just around the corner.

You can celebrate Energyween by making your very own energy-themed costume, checking out a spooky infographic about energy savings, downloading our energy-themed pumpkin carving patterns, and listening to a special Halloween episode of "Direct Current: An Podcast" featuring a real-life energy ghostbuster. You can even calculate the energy consumption equivalency of your favorite Halloween candy. While you're at it, learn how to banish energy vampires and make your spooky basement less frightening.

Share photos of your energy-themed costumes and jack-o-lanterns with the hashtag #Energyween on TwitterInstagram and Facebook, or by email at We'll share our favorites during the week of Halloween.
