Some electric companies will do a free energy audit in your home and suggest ways you can cut the bills. Also some of them have a program where they will pay a portion of the cost of adding insulation to the house. I had that done several years ago and the company that did the insulation sprayed as much as possible into my attic areas. My share of the entire cost was only $100. at that time. It has helped so much to keep my house warm in winter and cooler in summer.

And if you're interested in being a non-consumer, I compost everything for my window garden in a pot outside my window far enough that I can't smell it for soil next year, recycle paper, glass, and whatever else my community does and carry bags in my car to pickup recycleables when I'm walking.
I've already changed all my lightbulbs to the energy saving long lasting kind which cut my bill considerably, I keep my heat at 66F in winter 72F in summer because of my asthma. I vent the dryer inside in winter with a thing to keep the dust trapped. Water temp down. Insulation up. Done everything I could on that website. I'd like to do solar and wind but working on my sons house instead of the apartment I live in. Celia
