The big thing these days is to reduce the size of your "carbon footprint" on the environment, meaning of course, that you try your best to use less non-renewable energy.
So how do we reduce the amount of electricity we use, and what real difference does it make?
By saving these little bits of electricity we save ourselves money, we help the environment, and if we all work together on this, we can slow down global warming by reducing carbon emissions. If your electric meter is spinning as fast as slot machines for as long as you can remember, then today is the right time to be concerned.
This article emphasizes on the use of home energy saving devices for 2 reasons: 1, home energy saving devices would let you save on electric bills and 2, it will let you save money without restricting your use of your devices. Among all electronic devices you have in your home, the home’s heating and cooling system and the water heating system are the 2 biggest contributors why you receive big electric bills.
Centralized Heating & Cooling – this device would let you set your desired room temperature on each room. Programmable Thermostat – Installing this device would let you set specific room temperature even if you are not home. Remote Control Heating System – Even you are away or if you are just arriving or if you forget to change the thermostat before leaving, the remote controlled heating system works best.
Low-Flow Showerhead – This device would let you save as much as 40% on your water consumption. Multi-Setting Showerheads – There are several showerheads with settings such as pause, spray, puls, turbo pulse, and outsider spray. Toilet Flush Water Saver – This device would let you save as much as 25% of your water consumption. This chart from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory provides a simple clear way to understand how energy is used in the US. Energy sources are on the left side – solar, nuclear, hydro, wind, geothermal, natural gas, coal, biomass, petroleum. Energy users are broken in to four categories a€“ residential, commercial, industrial, and transportation. The gray boxes on the right sum up the energy that was used and the energy that was lost (rejected). The width of the lines running from the various energy sources to their destination uses is proportional to the amount of energy used. As can be seen, the lion’s share of US energy consumption comes from fossil fuel sources (oil, coal, natural gas).


Zooming in to the transportation sector, we can see that most of that oil is used for personal vehicles (cars, light truck and SUVs). Any attempt to reduce our dependance on oil will require grappling with transportation in general, and personal transportation in particular. Personal transportation is 4 to 10 times less efficient than public transportation (commuter rail, trains and buses). WELCOME!Thank you for visiting 8020 Vision a€“ connecting the dots between global challenges and sustainable solutions. One of these energy resources is electricity, which is usually generated from Coal fired or nuclear power stations. Replace all the light globes in your house with low energy globes; the flourescent tube type.
Try and avoid using appliances that use a lot of energy, like tumble driers, stoves and heaters.
If you leave outside lights on for security reasons, make sure that they have a light sensor, so that they will automatically switch off when it gets light, preventing them from being left on all day accidentally. In the kitchen, use a microwave oven rather than a stove where possible; don't leave the refrigerator or deep freeze door open, and use a dishwasher if you can afford one. Many American households are trying to find ways on how to lower down their electric bills just like you. The former deals with controlling your use of your devices and becoming more responsible in using them. Thus focusing on how to reduce consumption on these two would certainly affect the figures of your electric bill. The central control will let you adjust the temperature even if you are not on that specific room. The best example to use this is when you are often leaving the heating and cooling system as is when you leave home.
I been through lots of them to get my knowledge pool upgraded, well I must say, thi9s has really been awesome. Of the fossil fuels, oil is the source most in demand, the bulk of which is used by the transportation sector. When oil prices rise quickly, as they did in 2008 (to over $140 per barrel), consumer behavior shifts rapidly.
Coal, as a fossil fuel, generates a lot of carbon emissions, and even nuclear power leaves hazardous waste to be disposed of.


There are situations of course where you have to use these appliances, but if possible, use another method. Apparently, dishwashers use less hot water than doing the dishes by hand, thus saving energy. And you are still trying to figure out how will you be able to lower down your energy cost to somehow make paying easier for you. The latter on the other hand entitles you to purchase specific devices to replace or add on your existing fixtures. This is a great help if you have the tendency to leave the room and leave the heating and cooling system in its current state. But since you have invested money on these, the first months will literally just pay you back what you have spent to have these devices. Understanding the energy trends shaping our world is essential to managing risk and innovating solutions for business, government and community. Also put insulation around your hot water pipes, to further reduce heat loss and consequent energy usage. Then the water heater has to heat up that bit of water that you didn't actually get to use anyway. For example, don't use the tumble drier when the sun is shining warmly on your washing line. Please note that if the manufacturers instructions tell you to leave a window open, then do so, as this is normally for a good reason.
But in the long run, when you are using these devices for years, savings are evidently felt. If you multiply this by the amount of homes in America, say about 50 million, this is a saving of 333,000 Megawatt hours. Commuters embraced public transportation, with many metropolitan areas seeing 30 to 45 percent increases in use of public transportation in just one quarter. What this means in real terms is that you could probably completely do away with 2 or 3 large coal fired power stations, just on this saving alone.
