4.0 DISCOUNTS ON ELECTRICITY AND UTILITIES

==Average Discount = $350

The average family can save 20% to 35% on energy costs with virtually no work and no change in lifestyle. You will not be able to accomplish this quickly. Over the next year plan on making your home much tighter, inquire about Time of Use at your local utility, replace old appliance with new energy efficient ones and put new energy efficient light bulbs around the home. The reduction in cost will be significant.

4.0.1 FREE AND LOW COST SERVICES FROM YOUR POWER COMPANY

Call your electric company. You might be surprised at what they have to offer.

Here are some examples: time-of-use rates, TOU (see below); load management payments to you for shutting down your hot water heater or air conditioner for brief periods; low interest loans for insulation and storm windows or for buying a heat pump; rebates for heat pumps; a free or low cost energy audit of your home; rebates for fluorescent lights; free hot water tank insulation blanket (some even install it for you); free hot water pipe wraps; free low-flow shower heads; free portable electric heaters; an equal payment plan that gives you a regular bill each month based on an estimate. In addition ask about possibly free booklets, pamphlets and other helpful information.

This list is by no means complete. Ask your electric company in detail what it offers. This varies considerably from company to company and region to region.
