July Reduce Your Use Prize

Most of us have heard that you should turn the lights off when you leave the room. Turning lights off saves energy and money. To calculate how much energy you save for every hour each light bulb in your house is switched off, first check the watt rating printed on it. If the bulb is a 60-watt bulb and it is off for one hour, then you are saving .06 kilowatt hours.

Replacing incandescent bulbs with LED bulbs, which use at least 75 percent less electricity and last five to 10  times longer, reduces energy and maintenance cost. Using natural lighting or daylight when possible will also help reduce your costs.

This month’s energy-saving prize is a motion sensing light bulb socket. The bulb socket will activate when motion is detected and will turn off automatically after a period of time when motion stops.
