Three steps to cutting your electricity bill

February 27, 2020

The average home spends $1,368 annually on electricity. While that helps power things we rely on like heating, cooling, entertainment and information, a third of it can be wasted.

But you can enjoy the benefits of electricity while reducing this waste.

Myles Jensen, senior manager of member relations with the member-owned, not-for-profit Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, offers three conservation tips to help:

  1. A smart thermostat can reduce cooling and heating costs, which total nearly half of a typical home’s energy use.
  2. Adjusting water usage and lowering hot water temperatures can reduce the energy used by a water heater.
  3. Cold water washing and outdoor drying can cut washer and dryer energy consumption.
