What do you do?

Some ideas
1. change all your most used lights to Compact floresent
2 See if a tankless water heater will work for you or put a timer or off on switch
3 Only do full loads of clothes and dishes Air dry
4 Plug your tv,stereo and dvd players into an outlet strip with a surgr protector. Shut it all off at once.
5 if you need new appliances get energy star, get the rebate, save on opeating costs.
6 Unplug your computer when not in use. printers too.
7 make sure your water pump is not oversized and the pressure tank is large enough and in good shape
8 unplug all the little stuff when not in use, cell phone chargers and all that
9 put a temp control on window ac units ( LUX smart temp. model WIN100, programable outlet thermostat)

What else???

My hot water tank under my kitchen sink has an on/off switch. Not going to be here long enough to get a tankless water heater but a friend had one & it really cut her WAPA bill way down. She didn't get the Home Depot kind but a better model. I air dry a lot more stuff now than I did before.

Here is an interesting light bulb - it absorbs light during the day and releases it at night like a glow-in-the-dark keychain:

My job here in the states is selling energy efficient lighting. We do it mainly for large warehouses and buildings that use HID lights. Do you guys know if there would be a good market for it there?
