Energy conservation tips
-Adjust your thermostat to 78 degrees or higher, after cooling your home to below-normal levels in the morning. Turn it off if you will be away from home.
-Use a fan instead of air conditioning when possible.
-Draw drapes and turn off unnecessary lighting.
-Limit the opening of refrigerators, which is a major user of electricity in most homes. The average refrigerator is opened 33 times a day.
-Keep refrigerator full (with bottles of water if nothing else) and unplug your second refrigerator if you have one.
-Avoid using the oven. Instead, cook on the stove, use a microwave or grill outside.
-Set your pool pump to run overnight instead of during the day.
