Did you know that the junk mail you receive can produce enough energy to heat 250,000 homes? Did you know that electric energy used to power lights, computers, etc. is powered by energy plants?

SAVE ENERGY! SAVE PLANET!

Here are some tips on Energy Conservation:

  • Change YOUR light bulbs to ENERGY STAR CFLs aka Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs
  • Turn off YOUR light's when leaving any room
  • Enable power management on YOUR Computer and monitor
  • Heat YOUR home with the Sun's help. Leave window shades or blinds open during the daytime and consider solar heat as a heating source.
  • Avoid over-drying YOUR clothes.
  • Change or clean YOUR ACs air filters at least once a month, to keep your system running at peak performance.
