Utility bills can be the pits sometimes. It’s one of those bills that you have to pay and it’s not going to go away, like a credit card bill would if you paid it off, so finding ways to SAVE on it is always important to me.
Stories about Grilling
Amidst all of the day-to-day madness, this has been one of the energy-savingest years in recent memory. I owe that savings to the folks at Project Envolve, which is sponsored by PPL Electric Utilities.
I’ve been working with my local electric company for the past few years to bring you guys ideas and guidelines for how to lower your electric bill. So while most of these tips are repeats, I thought it would be nice to have it all in one spot as a quick reference guide!
These tips are easy to implement and can end up saving you money on your home energy bills. Here is a list of all of the tips that were shared this year by myself and other Project Envolve Ambassadors.
I’m sharing the things I really do on a regular basis. These are easy, inexpensive, and legitimately cut my utility bills. Consider it my greatest hits of energy efficiency! See which ones appeal to you and give them a whirl this summer. You might not be so scared of your next electric bill!
Here in NEPA, we have gone from cold and rainy to HOT,HOT, HOT in a few days! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, I LOVE the warm weather but I know that a lot of people don’t feel that way and I know that higher temps can wreak havoc on electric bills so I have compiled 10+ Tips to Beat the Heat.
The best way to leave a better planet behind for our kids is to teach them how to take care of it themselves, right? When you know better, you do better, and Project Envolve has definitely taught my whole family a whole lot of “better” when it comes to saving money, energy, and our environment.
If it were up to my husband (he’s the “grill master” in our house), he’d grill all year round. Actually, he does. Oh sure, we grill more often in the summer – at least once a week, and sometimes two or three times – but he’s also been known to shovel a path through the snow to fire up the grill in the middle of January.
It’s summertime! This has to be my favorite time of year for obvious reasons: no real schedule, the beach, warm weather and no bulky coats, and oh yes, the summer food! Our family loves to grill out all summer long. Really we grill year-round but definitely more so when the weather is nice. I knew that grilling saved me from doing dishes (three cheers!) but I didn’t really realize how energy-efficient grilling is. If you need some inspiration to get outside and grill, check out how cooking this way can save you energy AND money!
It has finally getting warmer here in the Northeast and after what seemed like the coldest, longest winter it feel great! It has definitely made me dream of cooking on the grill! To me nothing tastes as great as food that has been cooked on a grill. Everything is so juicy and meats get so tender when marinaded….mmm, my mouth is watering just thinking about it! I plan on grilling outside until the snow forces me back in!
