We are committed to helping consumers make choices that help protect the environment
Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 12, 2007
GreenEnergyChoice, the new online marketplace for green energy choices, has identified several ways in which living green can actually save money.
To save money while living a green lifestyle, GreenEnergyChoice recommends making the following changes:
- Change out all incandescent light bulbs to compact fluorescents that last longer, burn cooler and use less electricity. Compact fluorescent light bulbs typically consume 65 to 75 percent less electricity than regular light bulbs and last up to 10 times longer than regular bulbs.
- Change to a green energy company. By changing to a green provider one can breathe easy knowing you have stopped environmental pollution and done the equivalent of planting over a 100 trees.
- Insulate your house so it can better retain warmth in the winter and coolness during those hot summer days.
- Purchase a digital programmable thermostat. Doing so will cut heating and cooling costs by 20 percent and save at least $100 per year.
