The Energy Force Ambassador Program, currently in its 11th year, provides individuals with developmental disabilities the opportunity to work on skills needed for employment and empowers them to teach the public about energy efficiency. We are so excited to introduce Abby S as the new Search & JJ’s List ComEd Energy Force Ambassador for 2022.
Individuals, like Abby, share important information about energy conservation and fiscal responsibility while learning about both themselves.
We asked Abby to share some thoughts about herself, what she has learned so far, and her favorite energy-saving tip:
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I was born in the Philippines, but I came to America at age 3. I grew up in Chicago. Now I live in a group home in Skokie.
I worked at Planet Access Company Warehouse as a Warehouse Assistant for the past several years until it shut down last month. Fortunately, I was offered the opportunity to become a ComEd Energy Force Ambassador. I love to work, learn new things, and meet new people. The ComEd Energy Force Ambassador program is allowing me to do these things!
What are you most excited about being a ComEd Energy Force Ambassador?
I was very happy to get my new ComEd t-shirt. I am looking forward to meeting new people and going to fun events. And to earn money!
What have you learned so far as an Ambassador?
I learned about solar panels and that you can use them in Illinois even though we don’t always have sunny weather.
Why do you think it’s important to be a ComEd Ambassador?
For me, it’s important to be working, even if it’s not consistent work. I want to keep practicing and learning skills that I can use at a job in the future.
And it’s important for the planet. Teaching others how to save energy will benefit the environment.
What is your favorite energy tip? Can you explain how it saves energy?
Vampire devices! I love that term. A lot of electronic devices continue to suck energy – like a vampire sucks blood – even when they are turned off. These “vampire devices” waste electricity. If you use a power strip and turn the strip off when the electronic device isn’t being used, it will stop them from using unnecessary energy.
