There is a great list online here: http://www.consumersenergy.com/apps/pdf/More-100-ways-save-on-bill12-06.pdf that gives 100 ways to lower your energy bill. There are too many to list here, but some of them are things that you wouldn’t normally think of to help you save energy.
One great way to reduce your energy bill is to try and avoid consuming energy through “vampire” appliances. Many electronics and appliances use energy even when they are turned off. Televisions oftentimes have a small red light on the front of their face that is still on even when the television is off, showing that electricity is still flowing. To save about 20% of your energy costs a month, unplug devices like your television, computer, and cellphone charger when you are not using them.
Start paying a lot of attention to the lights and electronics/appliances in your house.
Even when they’re “off” things like your TV, computer, air conditioner, even your toaster all still draw energy. So get in the habit of turning off the power strip when you’re not using these things. Every little bit counts! Even your cell phone CHARGER draws energy when its just plugged in, so unplug it rather than just leaving the charger permanently in the wall (like a lot of peole do).
Also, if you have an electric water heater, turn the heat down. Make it so that when you take a shower, you can just turn it on full hot, rather than having to dilute the hot with cold water.
