Summer is Here and With the Temperature Rising, Your Electric Bill May Be Too
Florencia Contesse, Florida Power & Light
(Juno Beach, FL, Friday, June 26, 2015) – Summer is here and with the temperature rising, your electric bill may be too. That’s because your air conditioner is working longer and using more energy to keep you cool.
Florida Power and Light Company’s Florencia Contesse, provides “Seven Sizzling Summer Savings Tips” to fire up the savings in the kitchen this 4th of July.
USE YOUR OUTDOOR GRILL INSTEAD OF YOUR OVEN TO KEEP YOUR KITCHEN COOL. IF YOU’RE COOKING INSIDE, USE SMALLER APPLIANCES LIKE TOASTER OVENS AND CROCK POTS THAT USE LESS ENERGY, OR CONSIDER COLD SNACKS INSTEAD. IF YOU’RE GRABBING ITEMS FROM THE FRIDGE, DO IT ALL AT ONCE TO AVOID AIR ESCAPES. RUN YOUR DISHWASHER ONLY WHEN FULL AND USE THE AIR DRY OPTION. IF YOU’RE PLANNING A FAMILY OUTING TO SEE A PARADE OR ENJOY FIREWORKS, REMEMBER TO TURN THE LIGHTS OFF! FOR MORE SAVINGS, KEEP YOUR THERMOSTAT AT SEVENTY-EIGHT IF YOU’RE HOME AND EIGHTY-TWO WHILE YOU’RE AWAY.
