    Lower Electricity Use and Cut Your Energy Bill Drastically

    TOM: Was your last electric bill a huge shock? Hi, I’m Tom Kraeutler.

    LESLIE: And I’m Leslie Segrete with today’s Money Pit home improvement minute.

    TOM: Believe it or not, your electric company actually wants you to save money. Most have energy-saving programs for you to do just that. For example, some utilities help homeowners power down through periods of high demand with pricing plans that reward off-peak use.

    LESLIE: Plus, many utilities offer a menu of rebates on improvements that help you trim power or go green at home. They can also steer you towards smarter usage with online resources like energy-saving calculators, buyers’ guides, and tip sheets.

    TOM: Finally, consider adding your own energy monitor. These are simple to install and work with your current electrical meter to provide real-time information on energy use and cost, delivering information you need to know on how best to trim your own energy usage. I’m Tom Kraeutler.
