Is your electricity bill getting a little too high? What can you do to help conserve energy and save on your monthly expenses? Then this blog post is for you! Do you know that California’s largest electricity and natural gas provider has bumped up residential electricity rates by 8% and gas by 11% on Jan 1? Well, if that’s not enough, the California Public Utilities Commission also has approved another electricity rate hike for an estimated 9% more since March 1. It’s hard to not notice a 20% rate hike. Here are 4 tips to help you save:
Power Down 4-9 PM
By making a few small changes to your routine, you can help create a small change for California. It’s as simple as shifting when you use energy.
Recharge While You Sleep
Recharge your devices while you do the same, so when you wake up your devices are fully charged with more natural energy available.
Hold Off On Chores
Take a break from chores! Wait to start your dishwasher and laundry until after 9 pm or the next morning, so that you’re cleaning with more natural energy available.
Ready. Set. Go.
By setting your thermostat to 68 degree or lower from 4-9 pm in cooler months, you’ll join fellow Californians in saving money and reducing your pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
