Summer Energy Savings Tips

Summer Energy Savings Tips

The energy grid (and your electricity bill) will be put to test during these hot summer months. How can you  keep cool while reducing energy costs and usage?

We’ve compiled our best low- to no-cost energy efficiency tips for this summer. 

  • Use kitchen, bath and other ventilating fans wisely. In just one hour, these fans can pull out a houseful of cooled air.
  • Turn off fans when rooms are not in use and pull the shades down to keep your house cool. Consider window treatments and coverings that can improve energy efficiency.
  • Choose natural lighting during the day whenever possible. Or consider solar lighting for your outdoor patio or front yard.
  • UNPLUG! Unplug chargers, devices and appliances when they are not in use.
  • For maximum energy affordability, schedule regular maintenance for your cooling equipment.
  • Cook outdoors!
  • Set a smart thermostat and keep your house warmer than normal when you are away and lower the thermostat setting when you return home and need cooling. Check out for discounts and instant rebates.
  • Don’t forget to lower the temperature on your water heater to save up to 10% on water heating costs this summer.
  • Check out ETG Energy Efficiency programs available exclusively for ETG customers.
