- Turn Everything Off – To conserve energy usage this summer, you can turn off the lights and small appliances when not in use. Unplugging your cell phone charger, DVD/Blu-ray player, or small appliances in the kitchen when not in use can help you save from “phantom loading”.
- Change Your Bulbs – LED lighting lasts longer, uses 75% less energy, and doesn’t give off heat like the traditional light bulb. Consider switching to LED bulbs to save on energy.
- Air Dry Your Clothes – A great way to take advantage of the summer sun is to hang your clothes out to dry instead of using your dryer. It can help you lower your energy usage, and nothing beats that fresh sunshine smell!
