We have two weeks left until the Senate is expected to vote on the Iran deal, your Senator is undecided, and we need every possible vote we can get. Please call now and urge your Senator to vote "yes" for the Iran deal.
The reason given by power companies and municipalities for the need to expand coal based power plants is that there is an increasing energy demand. As such, one of the best actions that can be taken is conservation.
One area you can look at is the energy efficiency of your own home. Simple things like switching to low energy compact flourescent bulbs. Stores such as Home Depot, Lowes and Target are beginning to sell these bulbs at very competitive rates.
You can also look at replacing your major applicances with higher efficiency units, and doing things like slightly raising the temperature in your refridgerator and turning off heated drying on your dishwasher. Other areas of improvement are shutters, blinds or solar shades on your east and west facing windows.
If it is time to replace your air conditioning, consider a higher SEER model (14, 16, 18) and look at putting in a multi-zone system. Ceiling fans can make you feel cooler at a higher thermostat settings. Little things add up!!!
