I recently got a mailer from Power Tomorrow, a program that encourages a “greater energy-efficient commitment in our lives.” It broke down energy use by category:
The mailer also included some great energy savings tips. I’ve highlighted the easy ones here and added some additional ones:
If you made approved energy efficient changes last year, be sure to claim the energy tax credit on your 2007 taxes.

Thanks for the tips. I can really use them this year. My energy bills have been skyrocketing ever since the baby was born, my wife stay at home, and her parents come to live with us. I guess I shouldn’t complain since energy cost per person actually went down significantly now that there are 8 people in the house instead of 5.
Great tips. I try to do as many of these as I can. Our energy bills are generally not very high – which I like!
Thanks for the mention.
How lucky we are in Malaysia.
The 40% part of space heating is something we don’t have to worry about. Ours is an equatorial climate so we have seasons of rain and no rain.
@ Pinyo: Cost per person is an interesting way to look at it.
@ Patrick: Good to hear your energy bills are low, I need to work on ours!
@Father Sez: That sounds wonderful right now… as I look out the window at 3 foot snowbanks!
I installed and an attic fan, saves me a ton on cooling costs in the summer time. All you have to do is open your windows and turn it on, the breese takes care of the rest. Good luck all!
