I reduced my electric bill by more than half and so can you!
In previous blog posts I have reminded the community that humans are rapidly warming the climate by adding massive amounts of heat-trapping gases such as carbon dioxide. It is urgent that we begin reducing these emissions now so that out climate does not change in a way that we cannot adapt. The good news is that one way to do so is to become more energy efficient and that means saving money. Who doesn’t like saving money? And if we can save the planet while doing so, well, that is a great bonus!
I have reduced my LIPA bill from $186/month in 2008 down to $86/month in 2012. $100/month right into my pocket and I have to tell you, it feels good keeping my money instead of sending it to LIPA. The images below show my LIPA bills from 2008 and present.
