Energy Tips

As the cost of energy goes up, more and more people are looking for ways to control their energy use.  The best way to do this is first to be aware of how much energy you use each month and how it is being used in your home or business.


The Department of Energy notes that in an average all-electric home, the electricity usage is as follows:

Space Heating and Cooling 39.4%   

Water Heating 12.5%

Lighting 11.6%

Electronics 8.1%

Refrigeration 7.2%

Clothes washer, dryer, dishwasher 6.2%

Cooking 4.7%

Computers 1%

Other 9.3%



You can reduce your energy use in these areas and have a more energy-efficient home.
