Do you get the most out of the energy you use at your home Share with Juniors doing the Get Moving program

As you can see, your home takes a lot of energy to power and live in: here's some easy ways to reduce and greenify your home. Everyone wants to make the world a better place and all, but most folks don't want to put a lot of effort into it. Here's some easy ways to make your home more green and good for the environment without wasting a lot of your time or money.

1. Make a Laundry Day
No seriously, wash your clothes in cold water and then dry your clothes: one load after another. That way, you're not using as much energy to keep the dryer hot, and you're not using the hot water heater either!

2. Switch to Energy Star-qualified appliances when you upgrade.
 Even if they cost a little more, they'll actually save you on your electricity bill in the long run, not to mention they're better on the environment and they can add worth to your home!

3. Grow a Garden
Not only is this good for your environment, your yard, and your tummy: it also saves you money! Particularly planting potatoes, tomatoes, strawberries, lettuce, and other plants your family eats help cut down on cost. Some estimate it can save you upwards of $1000 a year! Plus, while it may seem like it's a big time commitment, gardening is both incredibly relaxing and a good workout!

4. Go On the Wind Energy Grid
For $2.15 extra a month on your energy bill,{mls: https://www.xcelenergy.com/Environment/Renewable_Energy/Wind/Colorado_Wind_Power} will allow you to use only wind-powered energy. Not a bad deal,huh?

5. Turn off Your Electronics
If you'll be away from it for more than 20 minutes, at least move it into sleep mode. Plug your entertainment system into a power surger and turn the whole thing off before you go to bed. This alone will save you around $600 a year.
