  • Reflection Question
    Energy Adjust the Thermostat
    Your utility company is able to tell you your average energy usage. Ask them how your energy usage compares to others in your zipcode, and in your state. What other steps can you take each day to reduce your electricity usage?

    To reduce electricity usage I can remember to turn off lights and other electronics when I leave the room. I could also do a better job of unplugging appliances when they aren't in use (TVs, phone chargers, microwave, etc.).
