Reduce utility costs – turn off lights, reduce water usage and adjust the thermostat to reduce your utility costs. Shift heating and cooling to low rate hours etc

Drive smarter – combine errands to reduce trips, avoid jack rabbit starts and stops,  drive at the speed limit and coast into stop signs and lights instead of breaking at the last minute.
