VICTORIA, Texas – There are some ways to help preserve electricity, as temperatures are expected to get colder. First, plan beforehand if there’s an expected activity requiring a lot of energy use. Secondly, use natural light during the day. In addition, turn off unnecessary lights. Also, try to manage the thermostat, especially if the residency has smart-home features. Make sure the residence has proper insulation. Try running fuller laundry loads. When appropriate, temporarily hang dry some clothes. Try eating prepackaged foods or microwavable meals if this is an option. Lastly, unplug any unused electronics.
