Install energy-saving light bulbs in your home or office. Save up to fifty percent of what you otherwise pay for your energy usage with ESD solar panels. Become an informed consumer. Read up on some of the most effective easy ways to lower your electricity bills.

Switch to solar power to help save the planet. One of the easiest and most effective methods to going solar is by installing your own solar energy panels. They can be built at home for about one hundred dollars. You can also buy ready-made kits at your local hardware store. Many states now give tax incentives to people who go solar energy. There are several other ways to go solar energy like donating to a renewable energy charity, planting trees, or eating foods that absorb solar energy.

Check with your electric provider. This step may seem obvious, but it is surprising how many electric consumers do not check their suppliers’ offerings. It is so important to make sure you are getting the best deal. If your provider does not mention anything about your rates or options, it is probably time to switch. A simple solution is to call your supplier and ask what they offer in terms of fixed-rate pricing, renewable rate pricing, or no cost.

Switch to heat and air conditioning as a better way to lower your electricity bill and help the environment. There are two main types of heat pumps: open and closed systems. An open system heats water in the tank using the same fuel source (in this case, natural gas) that fuels the air conditioning unit. A closed system does not use any fuel but uses an external source such as oil, coal, or wood to heat water. These are the best choices for heating your home, because natural gas prices have been at an all-time high, and they are far more efficient than conventional methods such as furnaces and radiators.

Use energy-efficient light bulbs. Your electricity bill could be dramatically lower if you chose to replace your incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs with energy-efficient light bulbs. The Energy Star Qualified Lighting System identifies LED and compact fluorescents as energy-efficient light bulbs that save up to 75% less energy than incandescents and will help to reduce global warming.
