Energy

Also known as Stop Wasting Your Money!

If you are new to My Green Montgomery, the Energy Projects listed below are a great place to start.  Each project has the potential to save you money on your utility bills, and several of them can be accomplished today or by phone.

Not everyone wants to claim the “green” label, but who doesn’t like a little more green in their pocket?



Energy Projects

Switch to Clean Energy

In Maryland, you have a choice as to where your electricity comes from. If you choose a renewable energy source, your utility will add clean energy to its grid to power your home. View Project

Schedule a Quick Home Energy Checkup

Most homes have areas where energy is wasted or overused — and wasted energy costs money you could be keeping in your pocket. You could try to search your home for energy saving projects yourself, or you could call in a professional. View Project

Install & Use Power Strips

TVs, computers, stereos, chargers — if the light is glowing, it’s using power, even if it’s turned off. This “phantom” standby power helps them to turn on quickly, but also quickly adds up to a lot of unnecessary energy usage. View Project

Change Your Appliance Settings

Raising your refrigerator’s temperature setting from 35 to 38 degrees and lowering your hot water heater temperature to 120 degrees can save energy and money. It’s just a few degrees that you won’t even notice. View Project
