• Unplug all appliances and turn off power strips you are not using.
  • Put all devices in power-saving mode, reduce their brightness, and make sure they are set to go to sleep when not used.
  • Only do full loads of laundry, then allow them to air dry.
  • Use a non-emitting means of altering room temperature and light settings in a room, such as opening a window or the blinds.
