Wise Energy Habits in the Home

Electricity makes our lives better. It gives us light to see at night. It helps wash our clothes and dishes and it cooks our food. It lets us hear music and watch TV and play games. It even powers the air conditioner that keeps us cool in summer. But it must be used wisely.

When energy isn’t used wisely, it’s wasted energy. Wasted energy means wasted money for your family and wasted resources that created all that energy. There are easy ways to help your family save energy every month.

One of the best ways to save electricity is to use energy efficient light bulbs. LED bulbs use less electricity than compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs, and LED bulbs last longer than CFL bulbs. Using LED bulbs decreases your monthly power bill, and bulbs will need to be replaced less often.
