Summer Readiness - What to do

What can you do?

Make easy changes to help conserve and lower your electric bill. Here are some no-cost examples of what you can do.

  • Adjust thermostats 4 degrees higher - every degree of cooling increases your energy use by six to eight percent.
  • Use fans to offset the thermostat setting - fans use less energy, and the wind chill effect makes you feel 4-6 degrees cooler.
  • Close shades and blinds to reduce the amount of heat lost through windows.
  • Turn off lights and pool pumps and unplug non-essential appliances during the hottest part of the day.
  • Avoid using large heat-producing appliances (i.e., ovens, washing machines, etc.).
  • Businesses should minimize the use of electric lighting and electricity-consuming equipment as much as possible.
  • Large consumers of electricity should consider shutting down or reducing non-essential production processes.
