Top 5 Ways to Reduce Your Summer Electric Bill

1.  Invest in a programmable thermostat.

Don’t blast the AC when you don’t really need it. A programmable thermostat can save you hundreds during the hot summer months.

Adjust your AC for the time you spend sleeping or away from home.

When you are home, set your AC a couple degrees higher than you normally might.  Try 78° F.

2.  Plant Trees & Shade Windows

On the south and west sides of your home, plant fast-growing trees and close the blinds to shade windows that are exposed to the hot summer sun.

Open the windows at night to cool down the house instead of using the air conditioner.

3. Find your vampire loads!

Vampire loads are typical household appliances that silently suck up energy 24 hours a day.

Little phantom loads like this can add up, stealing money out of your pocket.

For example, your coffee maker might be using small amounts of energy to run a digital clock.   How would you know?

Learn to use a Kill-A-Watt energy meter to hunt down the energy-suckers in your house.

4.  Make the switch to LED technology!

About 10% of the energy you use goes towards lighting your home.

One of the easiest ways to cut back your electric bill is to switch to LED Lighting.

LED lights are initially more expensive, but they will pay for themselves and save you money over their long lifespan.

5.  Go Solar.

I believe clean, renewable energy is key to the evolution of society as a whole. Solar powers our planet, why not harness it to power humanity? Let's power our homes, our work, and our vehicles with solar energy. It begins with raising awareness and encouraging those around us to go green.
