Save Energy

Every Little Bit Helps.

Each of us can make a difference in saving energy. Do your part to conserve energy at home by following these simple energy-wise practices—and save money at the same time:

  • Turn your thermostat up two degrees in the summer and down two degrees in the winter.
  • Turn off the air conditioner when no one is home or install a programmable thermostat.
  • Close curtains or blinds in the summer to keep the sun from heating your house.
  • Replace incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs. They last longer, give off less heat and save money on your energy bill. Bulb varieties and availability are expanding all the time.
  • Turn off lights and appliances when they're not in use and unplug them when you're gone for long periods of time; standby power still pulls energy.
