I came across a brochure from energy.gov providing a list of “easy low-cost and no-cost ways to save energy.”
I like the mention of “no-cost” ways to save energy since smart meters cost billions and billions of dollars to deploy and expose consumers and society to significant risks.
If you do have a smart meter, the industry rhetoric is that you can use the information from that smart meter to lower your energy bills.
Well, I don’t need a smart meter to save energy. If you perform any number of the actions listed below (courtesy of the Department of Energy), you will save energy and money. By reviewing your next monthly utility bill, you’ll get an idea of how much you saved.
