Tips To  Save Money On Your Electric Bill.

Everyone likes to save money when they can whether it be paying for items at the grocery store, or saving a few dollars on car insurance, or purchasing new solar panels for a home.

Utility bills are no exception.

We compiled a few easy tips to help you save money on your monthly electric bill.

Turn Of Lights

One of the easiest ways consumers can save money in their home or business is by turning off lights in rooms that are not being used.

On average, an incandescent bulb costs about 0.75 cents per hour to run.

If you leave the light on for 8 hours  * 0.75  cents = 6 cents.

This is just the cost of leaving on one bulb, however, when multiplied by several lights and it adds up quickly.

If you leave 4 lights on for 8 hours over a month at 0.75 cents per hour, the cost equals  $7.44.

Over a year that adds up quickly to almost $90.00 that consumers will spend for leaving on just 4 lights in a home over 8 hours a day.

Turning off lights that are not being used will help consumers save money on their electric bills.
