Tips to Save Energy Today

  1. Home Electronics
  2. Driving
  3. Energy Star Products
  4. SOS
  5. Refrigrator - Freezer
  6. Cooking
Plug home electronics, such as TVs and DVD players, into power strips; turn the power strips off when the equipment is not in useā€”TVs and DVDs in standby mode still use several watts of power
Drive sensibly; aggressive driving such as speeding, and rapid acceleration and braking, wastes fuel
Look for the ENERGY STARĀ® label on light bulbs, home appliances, electronics, and other products. ENERGY STAR products meet strict efficiency guidelines.
Turn things off when you are not in the room such as lights, TVs, entertainment systems, and your computer and monitor.
Regularly defrost manual-defrost freezers and refrigerators; frost buildup decreases the energy efficiency of the unit. Donā€™t allow frost to build up more than one- quarter of an inch
Match the size of the pan/pot to the size of the heating element (plate)
