Energy Conservation Tips

Everyone can help reduce strain on the power grid by practicing the following energy- and money-saving tips.

  • Turn off all unnecessary lights;
  • Set your thermostat higher or use a ceiling or portable fan instead of AC if possible;
  • Run your AC early in the morning to pre-cool your home. Close blinds, shades or drapes to block out the sun's heat;
  • Run major appliances, such as your dishwashers, washers and dryers, early in the morning or late at night;
  • Unplug TV, cable, DVD or gaming devices when idle, or use a smart power strip to eliminate phantom power; and
  • Turn off pool pumps during the late afternoon and evening.

The conservation efforts you make are appreciated. Every little bit helps!
