Cut Your Electric Bill


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

We're now serious about not wasting electricity. We have convinced ourselves to look at each light bulb, radio, fan, etc. as water faucets for electricity. Would you wash your hands and walk away leaving the faucet to run all day? Of course not! Keep reading... there's more... emoticon

We also now have at least one floor lamp in each room. Most of the time in the evening that's all we need. (Our living room was built with 8 sunken 65watt flood lights.) Why turn on EIGHT lights when one will do? IF we need it bright, then we go bright, but only for as long as needed. emoticon

    That's great. You can also ask your light company if they have a Time of Use meter. My husband worked reading meters awhile and found out a great tip. It has a few down falls, but it is worth every penny we have saved for my family. You have to do your MAIN washing, drying, heavy electrcity use during certain hours. We have not had a bill over $200 since we had ours put in. Just call and ask, they will send someone out. Hope this helps. emoticon
