At Power2Switch, we believe that many people want to go green and that if people have the knowledge and resources to do good, then they will! We are sharing 9 steps to help you make your home green…
Step one: The first step towards greening your home is to select a ‘champion’ (Hint: This tends to be MUM’s role)
Step two: After appointing a ‘champion’, do an energy audit (www.energysavers.gov can help you)
Step three: Review your electricity rate plans for service charges and meter read mistakes (Check out www.Power2Switch.com and go green!)
Step five: Opt for green flooring and non-volatile organic paints (Hint: A Google search yields several options for eco-friendly carpets and floorboards)
Step six: Get solar panels or small scale wind turbines for your location (Buy at www.pvpower.com)
Step seven: Consider retrofits for bulbs and lighting… most utilities and electricity suppliers offer rebates.
Step eight: Reduce ‘vampire power’ by using smart plugs (Hint: Smart plugs reduce usage by 85% or turn equipment off after extended idleness. Buy here!)
