If you’re looking for ways to save and get involved, you’ve come to the right place!
Save money with LEDs or CFLs
This fall, switch from incandescent light bulbs to energy-saving light emitting diode light bulbs (LEDs) or compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) in your home, dorm room, or apartment. You will save up to $10 annually for each incandescent bulb you replace. Click here to find special deals on LEDs or CFLs.
Use Advanced Power Strips
Did you know that your home electronic devices continue to use electricity to power devices, such as remote controls or clock displays, even when turned off? This is known as “phantom” or “vampire” load, also called standby power loss. Using an advanced power strip minimizes standby power by cutting the power to your electronics when they are not in use – saving you energy and up to $30 in the process. Click here to purchase an advanced power strip at a $10 discount.
