It’s Best to Conserve

Tips from an Electric Company on Saving Energy

Everywhere you look, you’ll find tips on cutting back and reducing your waste. There’s plenty of people who are passionate about preserving the environment. Going green is not just a fad, it’s a movement that has many followers. Cutting back on your energy usage is better for the environment and it also means lower bills. Here are some energy saving tips from an electric company:

Use Energy-Saving Lightbulbs

Compact fluorescent bulbs or LED lights use less energy. These light bulbs will last longer and save you money. Turn off the lights when they are not in use. This is a simple tip, but it is also something that frequently gets ignored. People leave the room with the lights on, and they don’t realize that is money down the drain.

Use Cold Water

It takes a lot of energy to create hot water. Washing your laundry in cold water will reduce your bills. This will not affect the cleanliness of your clothes because detergents work just as well when mixed with cold water.

Unplug Devices That Aren’t Being Used

If you are done charging your phone, unplug the charger from the socket. If you are not watching television, unplug it. It is more work for you to unplug and replug these devices, but it will result in a zero waste of energy. If an appliance or gadget is plugged into an outlet, it is using energy. Even if it is on standby mode, it is using electricity. Simply by unplugging unused devices, you can reduce your energy costs.
