Use less hot water
Heating water takes a lot of energy. Its not necessary to take cold showers, but being mindful of how much hot water you use, and how the water is being heated, can save a lot of electricity and money.Make sure your water heater is insulated so that it isnt losing too much heat. Consider getting a water heater that doesnt run on a continuously lit pilot light.Take showers instead of baths. Baths use a lot more water than showers.Take shorter showers. Spending 20 minutes in the shower uses up too much electricity.
