“Reading your meter helps you become more aware of your overall energy use and being aware is the first step to making wise decisions,” he advises members. “Making even small changes can add up to big savings.”
“Simply write down the numbers shown on the meter, then compare them to the numbers shown a day later,” explains Blackburn. “Then multiply the result by 30 to predict monthly power use,” he continued. “To impact the amount of energy used from day-to-day, you can make adjustments to the thermostat or make any of the other small changes we recommend changes to control energy use.”
“By the time the bill arrives, it’s too late to make adjustments,” he notes. “That’s why we have been so excited about MyUsage.com,” he adds. “It’s FREE to members and it eliminates the need to physically read your meter every day.”
