Six Easy Ways Kids Can Help

January 10 is National Cut Your Energy Costs Day, and children can help

  1. Turn off all the lights every time you leave the room.
  2. Shut down the computer when you are not using it. (If you need help, ask Mom and Dad.)
  3. Unplug electronics like cellphones, video games and TVs when not in use.
  4. Remind Mom and Dad to set the thermostat at home to 78 degrees in the summer and 68 degrees in the winter.
  5. Don’t hold the refrigerator door open for long periods of time.
  6. Change the lightbulbs. Help Mom and Dad replace their older lightbulbs with CFLs (compact fluorescent lamps) or LEDs (light-emitting diodes).
