There is no doubt in anyone’s mind right now, that Southern California is sweltering. This heat is exhausting and after a little while outside, the only thing you want to do, is to come home and flip on the a/c. Am I right? These past few days have been so hot! And guess what? We’re still not done with the summer heat.
Temps in the high 90s can go well into November, so even though we may be done with the official summer season, the hot weather is here to stay, at least for a little while more. This is why we need to conserve energy, and all the while, save us some money! So, how can we save some money and still keep cool?
Take a look at these tips from Southern California Edison!
- Give appliances the afternoon off; peak power usage on weekdays is usually between noon-6 p.m.
- Operate swimming pool equipment and energy-intensive appliances, such as dishwashers, washing machines and dryers, during early morning and evening hours.
- Set thermostats no lower than 78 degrees
- When practical at night, use electric fans and open windows instead of using air conditioning.
- Close drapes and blinds to keep out direct sunlight during hot periods.
Enroll in money-saving programs is easy as 1-2-3!
- Summer Discount Plan, the program offers up to $200 in bill credits for customers
- Save Power Days, the program provides bill credits in exchange for reducing energy who allow SCE to temporarily disable your central air conditioner usage during peak periods, from 2-6 p.m., on designated days
- CARE and FERA programs, find out if you qualify for the California Alternate Rate for Energy (CARE) and/or the Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) programs- The CARE program can save income-qualified customers about 30 percent on their utility bill, while FERA provides a lower monthly discount for income-qualified households of three or more based on their energy usage
Aun restan más días de verano y por esa razón Southern California Edison incentiva a sus usuarios a conservar energía, no sólo como una manera de ahorrar dinero en su factura de electricidad, sino también para ayudar a mantener la estabilidad y confiabilidad de la red eléctrica durante los días más calurosos en los que se registran picos de demanda y apagones pueden acontecer.
