You can take control of your energy costs. Our energy education program identifies small, no-cost changes which add up to savings on your energy bills.
We work with nonprofit organizations, multi-family facilities, and individual recipients of our other assistance programs to teach people how to conserve energy in your home to help make your bill more affordable.
Heating costs account for 50% of your total energy costs. To reduce your energy bill in the winter, lower your thermostat by 5-10 degrees overnight or when you’re leaving your home. This can help you save 5 to 15% on your bill.
Did you know that electronics and appliances that are turned off, but still plugged in continue to use electricity? If you unplug devices not in use, or turn off a power strip to disconnect multiple devices you can save as much as 10% on your electricity bill.
Using efficient light bulbs can have a significant impact on your monthly energy costs. LED light bulbs use at least 25% less energy than traditional bulbs and can last 25 times longer. Replacing old lights with LEDs as they go out is an easy way to save money.
