November:

This month let’s focus on Conserving Energy.

 How can you help conserve energy?

  • Buy Energy Star appliances and save up to 30% on bills
  • Plant shade trees near your home
  • Use a lid on boiling pots to reduce cooking time and energy use
  • Match the pot size to burner size to avoid energy waste
  • Purchase clothes dryers with moisture sensors
  • Buy front-loading washing machines
  • Set your hot water heater thermostat at 120 degrees or “low”
  • Wrap your hot water tank in an insulating “blanket”
  • Use warm or cold water for laundry when possible
  • Activate your “sleep” feature on home office equipment.
