The price of electricity is so high, how can I save?

There are several ways to save on electricity costs:

Use energy-efficient appliances and light bulbs.

Unplug electronics when they’re not in use.

Seal your home’s windows and doors to reduce drafts and improve insulation.

Set your thermostat to a lower temperature in the winter and a higher temperature in the summer.

Use natural light instead of artificial light whenever possible.

Plant trees or install shading devices to block the sun’s rays during the summer.

Set your water heater to a lower temperature or insulate the tank.

Run your dishwasher, clothes washer, and dryer during off-peak hours when electricity rates are lower.

Invest in solar panels if it’s feasible for your home.

It’s also a good idea to monitor your energy usage and try to identify the appliances or activities that use the most electricity. Once you know where your energy is going, you can make more informed decisions about how to reduce your usage.
