We’ve rung in 2018, and you’ve probably already made your New Year’s resolutions. Why not add a resolution to change the way you conserve electricity in your home?

Tackle phantom power by making time to monitor your electricity usage

Every year most homes see more electronic tools, gadgets and appliances come through the door, and with that means an increase in energy usage. Many of these products use electricity while not in use but left plugged in. This is called "phantom" or "standby" power, and it could account for up to 10 per cent of your home’s energy use. The average Canadian home has 25 or more electronic devices that use phantom power, costing approximately $150 a year in electricity.

Electricity service providers in Ontario offer numerous Save on Energy programs that help customers lower their electricity usage. From heating and cooling rebates to home assistance programs, there are many resources to help you save energy and lower your bill. Visit Saving Money & Energy for current programs.

Resolve to make energy-efficient decisions when buying home-related products or renovating

Whether you are purchasing a new light bulb, appliance or undergoing a renovation, take the time to research what the most energy-efficient option is, as those purchases will have a greater return on investment. Start small! The average Ontario home has 30 light fixtures, so trade up to LED bulbs and see your long-term savings grow.
