If It is Thursday it's Going Green - Going on Vacation

Before leaving for a vacation:

Unplug rarely used appliances and chargers that are not in use.

Unplug the TV, toaster oven and other well-used appliances before you leave on vacation (or more frequently).

If it’s not plugged in, it can’t suck energy. You can save up to 10% off your electric bill by unplugging your appliances at night.

Also, turn down the temperature on your hot water heater and on the furnace or air conditioner.

Have fun on your vacation!


Do you need a new appliance?

Buy energy-efficient appliances bearing the Energy Star label.

That way, at least less energy will be used.

This can save you money and help the environment.

Remember that even the very small changes that we make to conserve energy will save us money on our bills and help the environment.
