ELECTRIC CONSERVATION
Tips on how to avoid wasting valuable energy.
  • Set your A/C to 78 degrees during summer and 68 during winter.
  • Wash only full loads in the dishwasher and clothes washer. Hot water can add about 90% to the cost of each load.
  • Set your water heater to no more than 125 degrees. Any higher is simply a waste of energy.
