From 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. tonight, 2,712 cities from 83 countries will celebrate the World Wildlife Fund initiative, Earth Hour, by turning off the lights. The hope is to save energy and promote climate change awareness.
Shutting off the electricity and unplugging electronics that are needlessly sucking up energy is one of the simplest ways to cut costs around the house, especially in the Spring when it is warmer and lighter in the evenings. I know my utilities bill skyrockets during the Winter, but was a bit smaller in February. What do you spend monthly to keep the lights, heat, and water running in your abode?
