It’s New Year’s Eve! 3 Tips to reduce energy in the new year!


The new year is almost here—have you created your list of resolutions? You’ve still got a bit of time. Whether your goals are to save money, start better habits, or be healthier, saving energy via your home should be one of your goals. Find out how easy it is to conserve energy and protect the climate!

  • Change a light. One of the simplest ways to save money and energy at home is to swap out bulbs for ENERGY STAR certified LEDs. Upgrading your five most used lightbulbs will save you $45 each year! Talk about a win-win resolution!
  • Shut it down. In 2018, start the good habit of conserving energy you aren’t using. Stop keeping lights on all the time, unplug personal electronics devices – they still consume energy even when you’re not using them, and use a programmable thermostat to better regulate your HVAC system.
  • Bring your green wherever you go! You may not see the energy bills at work or school, but when you pay attention to your energy use wherever you go, you can help to prevent GHG emissions and protect the climate for us all. Check out our Bring Your Green to Work tip cards for more pointers.

However you choose to save energy, don’t forget that it’s important for many reasons—it’s tough to stick to your New Year’s resolution without a plan! Check out the My ENERGY STAR tool to start your energy-saving checklist. You can pick out projects and tasks to complete, and check off your progress. It’s easy to track how your energy savings stack up through the year!
