Ways to Save Energy

Here are some ways to save energy:


  • Look for the Energy Star label when buying appliances.

  • Use electric pans or toaster ovens when cooking small amounts of food instead of oven or microwave.

  • Fruits and vegatables take less time to cook when they are in smaller peices.

  • Foods cook faster and use less energy when they have a lid on them.

  • Preheat the oven only when the recipe calls for it. Boilers do not need preheating.

  • Save energy by cooking an extra dish or cooking a whole meal in the oven.

  • Let hot foods cool down before putting them in the freezer or refridgerator. They work harder and longer having to cool down hot foods.
