    Only use electric-powered items, appliances and luxuries when necessary. Don’t leave the light on in your room when you aren’t there. Turn the TV off if no one is watching it. If you have electric heating that can be programmed to turn on and off at specific times then program the system to do so. Don’t run the dishwasher until it is full. Don’t run the washer and dryer until they are full. When items like laptops and phones are fully charged, unplug them and turn them off. These are simple ways to reduce electricity use.

    You can also replace the bulbs in your home with Energy Star certified CFL bulbs. These bulbs use 75% less energy than other light bulbs and can last six times longer. This adds up to about $6 a year and $40 during the lifespan of the the bulb.
