Energy Savings

Below are Energy Savings Tips to help our household save money:

  • Keep the area clear around your air conditioner to allow your AC to work at peak efficiency, with minimal stress on the motor. Stressing the motor makes it work harder, using more energy, and shortens its life.
  • Vacuum under your refrigerator to allow it to operate at peak efficiency.
  • Consider three-way lamps; they make it easier to keep lighting levels low when brighter light is not necessary.
  • Focus the light where you need it. For example, use fluorescent under-cabinet lighting for kitchen sinks and countertops.
  • Consider installing timers, photo cells, or occupancy sensors to reduce the amount of time your lights are on unnecessarily.
  • Use Energy Star labeled lighting fixtures and use fluorescent fixtures for all lighting that will be on for an extended period of time during the day or night.
  • Use compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) in place of comparable incandescent bulbs to save about 50 percent on your lighting costs. CFLs use only one-fourth the energy and last up to 10 times longer.

Solar Energy...

The panels we use are capable of converting direct, diffused and reflected sunlight into electricity, and provide enhanced energy production over the system's lifetime.
