Merrilee Harrigan, VP of education at Alliance to Save Energy says there are some common everyday decisions that can help reduce energy consumption.
Bake with ceramic or glass pans instead of metal. They retain heat better so you can cook dinner at 25 degrees lower for the same amount of time.
It’s simple and you’ve heard it before, but turn off the light when you leave a room. It’s a myth that turning the light off and on creates an energy surge.
When your car idles for more then 30 seconds, turn the car off. Starting the car uses less energy than letting it run.
