A Few Energy Saving Tips

Conserving energy is important to everyone. Not only does energy conservation save consumers and
businesses money, it saves precious resources for future use.
Saving energy is much easier than many people think. Insulating homes and commercial buildings, changing
to double pane windows, lowering or raising the setting on the thermostat by just a few degrees has a
significant impact on energy usage. Taking the stairs, not the elevator if possible saves energy and gives some
much needed exercise. Replacing incandescent light bulbs with fluorescent lighting can save 30-40% of
lighting costs. Seal cracks and major air leaks around windows and doors. These are just a few things that can
save many dollars in utility bills.
Some utility companies will conduct energy inspections free of charge
