Reducing Energy Use

I recieved a flyer today while at church that I feel I should pass along. They recieved this information from Green America.

Simple things you can do today to reduce your energy usage.

Level 1

1. Turn off lights you are not using (duh! Even your mom told you that one!). 2% energy savings.

2. Clean coils on refrigerator and freezer. 4% energy savings

3. Don't heat or cool empty rooms.

4. Choose air-dry on your dishwasher. 5% savings

5. Turn off electronics when not in use, like tv's, computers, etc. 5% energy savings

6. Unplug appliances that are not in use.

7. Wash clothes in cold water. 7% savings

8. Hang clothes on dryer rack or clothesline. 10% energy savings.

All in all, this can reduce your energy savings by 1/3rr, and reduce your over all carbon footprint by 8960lbs.

More soon!
