Make it a habit to turn off lights when you leave a room

In an average home, lighting accounts for nearly 9% of electricity costs. Turning lights off when you’re not in the room is a simple way for you to make a dent in your utility bill, saving you up to $50 a year. Before you go to sleep, walk through your home and shut off any forgotten lights. To help get into the habit, try leaving eye-catching reminders near your lights and doorways. Encourage family members to turn off their lights as well. This is a great way for young children to do their part to save energy.
