Of course we’d love for everyone to install a solar array on their home, property, or business, but we know some of you are looking to start small. It is often hard to know where to begin and most homeowners start with many questions and only a few answers.
Here’s a helpful chart about what you can do to reduce your energy costs today!
|Cooling||Set to 78 degrees; 85 when no one’s home||$100|
|Heating||Set to 67; 59 when no one’s home||$100+|
|Heating Water||Take fewer showers; Launder with cold water||$100+|
|LED lights||Switch non-LED bulbs to LED||$100|
|Appliances||Unplug unused appliances||$50-$150|
Around the globe there is also a trend to try turning off all your devices and lights for one night a week or even one night a month. This is a great time to play board games by candlelight or enjoy connecting with friends and family over conversation.
