In Southern California, it costs more to produce electricity in the summer, when energy demand is at its peak, and less to produce electricity in the winter, during periods of lower demand. When you use energy wisely, you’ll save money and help the environment.
That is why the City of Walnut and Southern California Edison are partnering to encourage energy efficiency and conservation.
Using energy wisely in our everyday lives is a smart way to ensure our planet and its natural resources are protected. Making a few simple changes to your daily routine on how and when you use electricity can make a difference.
For example, lower your thermostat a few degrees in winter, raise it a few degrees in summer, and program it to avoid using energy when you’re not home. Reduce shower times by one minute to lower water heating costs while conserving water. Run your dishwasher and clothes washer only when fully loaded. Fewer loads reduce energy and water use. Hang laundry outside. Take advantage of late sunsets and warm evenings to bypass your dryer and let your clothes air-dry.
Energy management is the first and best way to manage your energy use, not only at home, but at work too. It can help create a brighter future for us all. By becoming more energy conscious, you’ll help California conserve valuable energy resources, now and into the future.
