    Electricity conservation tips

    Here are some tips Albertans can use to reduce electricity use, especially during peak times:

    • Turn off unnecessary lights and electrical appliances
    • Minimize the use of air conditioning/space heaters
    • Delay the use of major power-consuming appliances such as washers, dryers and dishwashers until after the peak hours of 5 – 7 p.m.
    • Use cold water for washing clothes – most of the energy used goes to heating the water. Only running full loads helps too
    • Cook with your microwave, crockpot or toaster oven instead of the stove
    • Limit the use of kitchen or bathroom ventilation fans
    • Use motion detector lights in storage areas, garages, and outdoors when possible
    • Work on a laptop instead of a desktop computer – laptops are more energy efficient than desktop units
