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, or learning ways to keep energy vampires from sucking your wallet dry. Share photos of your energy-themed jack-o-lanterns with the hashtag #Energyween on Twitter, Google+, Instagram and Facebook, or by email at We'll share our favorites during the week of Halloween.

Energyween is so much fun that you just may be tempted to celebrate all year long.
