Save $20/month and stay green

I have a personal interest in saving money and keeping the environment clean.  I hope you will enjoy some of my research!
  What is $20? What can you do with $160?   It sure can buy a dinner and a movie!  So why not cut the little things that can add up to much more.  Here are a few tips that will help!   
  1. Turning a computer that runs all day when you are not there off will save you $160/year.
  2. Converting 20 light bulbs to florescence will save you on a average $100.00
  3. Not using and shutting off that favorite old refrigerator that you put outside in the garage will save you also lots of electricity. IT works 2 x harder than the one inside your home!
  4. Your insulation for new construction should be R39-R49 not the good old 30.  Also if your ceilings are not insulated with R 30, then get the R 39 or R49! 
  5. Keeping your Air conditioner at 75 rather than 70 will save also lots on electricity.

For more information go to Bandera Electric Co-op http://www.banderaelectric.com/BECenergysavetips.htm

  You add all these up and you could come up with $1000's in JUST your electrical bill in 1 year. So that may almost buy you a vacation without putting any money in a savings! Or do a home improvement for free.    Let me know if you wish me to send you a free Guide to Cost-Cutting Conservation Measures booklet.
