ENERGY: Simple trade-offs in your everyday life can benefit you and the environment. By creating awareness of your energy consumption you can identify areas of opportunity. Making adjustments to daily habits, such as opening blinds versus turning on lights, letting fresh air in over running your AC, and washing clothing in cold cycles are all simple swaps that reduce energy use. Updating appliances to more energy efficient models will also help to reduce your energy usage.
MAKE THE BIG SWITCH: Replacing outdated appliances is a great start. From installing a programmable or smart thermostat to replacing major appliances, you can save money while reducing energy use. To lessen your carbon footprint further you can make the switch to a renewable energy source for home energy needs. Transitioning from carbon-emitting energy sources dependent on fossil fuels requires an initial investment that will eventually bring you savings over time. Luckily, there are more options than ever to make the renewables switch including options for solar leasing and community and shared solar. Take the time to research your options for renewable energy.
