Energy SaversEnergy Savers includes a list of tips to help you save energy and money. This section of our web site will be updated regularly with input from REA members and will be focused on providing you information on energy-saving ideas.
Technological advances in energy-efficient products can help our members save a lot of money. Today, you can choose refrigerators that use the same amount of power as a 75-watt light bulb, high efficiency light bulbs that last longer and require less electricity than traditional ones, and energy-efficient windows that can keep hot and cold air in and prevent hard-earned dollars from escaping.
Over the long term, one of our goals will be to introduce you to new technologies, tips and ideas to help improve the efficiency of your homes and buildings.
Statistics from an energy efficient household show that it is possible to reduce spending and save upwards of 30% per year.
