Q: Are you using Compact Florescent Lights (CFL) instead of incandescent lights?

A: Compared to a regular incandescent light, CFLs give the same amount of visible light and use one-fifth to one-third the electric power. CFLs also last eight to fifteen times longer than incandescent lights so you save money in more ways than one!

Q: Are you keeping up with your Smart Meter?

A: Smart Meters help you track and review your electric consumption on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. By being able to monitor your consumption, you can take immediate action to reduce your consumption and, therefore, reduce your energy cost.
