An energy calculator can help you understand many of the major considerations that determine how much energy you use every month. The age of your home, construction materials, amount of insulation, thermostat settings during the summer and winter, and appliance usage are all contributing factors. To determine how you can use less energy, click on the link that will connect you to your power cooperative’s energy calculator, and follow the prompts.
You’re also encouraged to talk with the energy advisor at your local power cooperative. He’ll be happy to inspect your home, answer all your questions about making it more energy efficient and show you ways that you can lower your electric bill, often without spending much money to do so.
