Green Tip: Santa will thank you for saving energy this holiday season
When you leave for the holidays: turn thermostats down to 55, close windows tight, and unplug chargers, printers and non-essential equipment. Get in the habit by switching everything off on a powerstrip. Always shut off computers and lights when vacating a room. Make a New Year’s resolution to carpool, bus, or bike more and to trade that space heater for a sweater.
