No-Cost & Low-Cost Tips 

Use energy more efficiently, even if you rent

Use our free online Energy Tracker℠ tool

Track your electricity use by hour, day or more. You can also get email or text alerts about your estimated bill or when it’s expected to exceed an amount you’ve set. It’s free, online and easy to use. To start, simply sign in to or create your online account.

Stay cool with these easy ways to save

Remember to wash smarter. Use the Energy Saver mode on your clothes washer and dishwasher, and setting your water heater thermostat 120 degrees is perfect for savings and safety.

Don’t cool unused rooms. If you have baseboard, wall units or other in-room systems, turn the systems down low when unoccupied to save energy and close the doors.

Turn off your computer and other home electronics when not in use. The default settings on most computers aren’t the most energy efficient so be sure to adjust yours for efficiency. 

Unplug energy “vampires” such as phone chargers when you’re done with them so they don't suck energy when not in use. 

Practice thermostat control to save on your cooling bill. In summer, try setting it to 75 to 78 degrees to save on air conditioning.

Pull the shades and close your fireplace damper. Window coverings help hold energy in and the heat out.
