Are You Paying for Wasted Energy?

Business electricity companies

Did you know that, according to, the United States wastes 58% of energy produced in any given year? Where does this energy go? In the United States, more half of all usable energy slips through poorly insulated doors and windows, or is lost to inefficient vehicles and light bulbs. The good news is that Americans can do something about it. How can Americans consume less energy in their homes, and save money while doing it?

Compare Electricity Providers

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) reveals that Americans spend an average of $95.66 on monthly utility and energy bills. There is a better way. Americans in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, and the District of Columbia can switch electricity companies. Switching companies may help residents save money on electricity. How?

Changing electricity providers gives U.S. men and women the freedom of choosing different payment plans, or even different energy. Some residents may save by selecting a fixed plan. (In other words, residents pay a flat rate instead of being at the mercy of fluctuating energy costs.) Other residents may even receive incentives for switching to green energy. Homeowners can use free online tools, such as tools located on the Environmental Protection Agency’s official webpage, to find green energy providers in their area.

Get Audited

Knowing where the problem lies is half the battle. Homeowners can successfully reduce energy consumption and lower energy bills – only after they understand how they are currently wasting energy. An energy audit identifies problem areas and helps homeowners determine whether they need more insulation, new appliances, or energy efficient light bulbs. Ask your local energy provider or a regional energy and weatherization office to recommend a professional to audit your home.

Stop wasting energy. Compare electricity providers and get your home audited to use energy wisely and pay less for your energy bills.
