Today, while driving and listening to the radio, as you do, I heard some bad news. My power bill is about to go up by 5%. Yay me! (I kid…I’m not at all excited about getting a higher power bill. Of course you already knew that, right?)
Luckily 5% of a bill that’s not super high isn’t going to be too bad to take. Why isn’t my bill that high? It should be. I’m honestly all about my personal comfort. I turn the heat and air conditioning on whenever I feel like it. I leave the television on all the time. I take far too many showers for any one person. I also have an impressive collection of electronics that I keep plugged in pretty much all day long. So if there’s a way to do it wrong I’m doing it. Except for one thing I do right. I’m an energy star! Well, at least I am an energy star when it comes to what I have. My appliances, my electronics…even my water heater are all ENERGY STAR® certified.
So what exactly does it mean? ENERGY STAR is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) voluntary program that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect our climate through superior energy efficiency.
