Health insurance laws are changing January 1. If you're a Colorado resident with questions about the new laws, the State of Colorado has set up a new site, http://www.cohealthinfo.com/, that explains the new laws in easy-to-understand language and videos. The site addresses the questions I have health insurance. What do I need to know? and I need health insurance. What are my options? The site also includes sections discussing health and wellness, health insurance fact vs. fiction, and a glossary and timeline. This website is a valuable resource for helping Coloradans navigate the new Affordable Care Act laws and health insurance Marketplace options.

Want to learn how to reduce your home’s energy use?
Check out Xcel Energy’s Power Check meter. Take it home, plug it in and see how much energy each of your appliances and electronic devices are using. The more you understand your own energy use the more you learn what you can do to save energy and money.
The meter will show you:
• Operating costs of various appliances and electronics such as refrigerators, TV’s, computers, etc.
• High energy-use appliances
• Potential savings from reducing appliance use
• Potential savings for replacing older appliances with energy-efficient models
• How much energy appliances use even when switched off
To check out a Power Check meter, ask the Circulation Desk. For a whole-home approach to energy efficiency, consider a Home Energy Audit. Find more about Xcel Energy’s efficiency programs at xcelenergy.com/PowerCheck.
