We use electricity for almost everything we do--from watching TV--to cooking--to taking a shower. This can get expensive. Here are a few suggestions on ways to cut down on the amount of electricity on your electric bills to save some money and help the environment.
Ways to save money on your electric bill:
- Unplug your appliances when you aren't using them. Even if you aren't watching TV or using your microwave, keeping them plugged in while they're off still uses electricity! You can save money by keeping your appliances turned off and unplugged when you are not using them.
- Use Smart Strip Power Strips. These power strips shut down your electronics while you are not using them. This will help cut your electric bills and help you conserve energy!
How this will also help the environment:
It's easy to forget that electricity doesn't come naturally. In fact, the process of making electricity creates lots of pollution in the environment. So, the less electricity we use, the less pollution there will be.
