ELECTRICITY

  • Save electricity. Turn off lights and appliances that are not in use. Buy appliances that save energy.
  • Dry your clothes outside or under clear plastic roofing instead of in a dryer.
  • Use LED lightbulbs. Compact fluorescent lightbulbs contain mercury which pollutes water systems.
  • Use solar lamps.
  • Install a solar water heater.
  • Install solar panels.
  • Ask your government to support 100% renewable energy.
