Use your 4Change usage dashboard.

Since you and your family may be spending more time at home over the coming weeks, you can keep track of your electricity usage by logging in to your 4Change Energy account and visiting your helpful "Usage Dashboard".

Turn off lights when not in use.

Turn off lights when they aren't being used. Yes, we sound like your grandpa... "What are you trying to do? Light the whole neighborhood?"... but it's easy to leave a room and forget to turn off all the lights.

Run full loads of laundry & dishes.

Running only full loads of laundry and dishes will help to eliminate those smaller unnecessary loads, and also reduce usage of your hot water heater.

Take shorter showers and adjust hot water heater.

Turn that 15 minute shower into a 5 minute quick rinse, and you'll still be squeaky clean (you can finish singing your Guns & Roses ballad while you dry off). Bonus Tip: You can also adjust your hot water heater to a lower setting to reduce usage even further.

Grill out to chill out.

Grilling is not only fun and tasty; it's also a great way to save the energy that your oven or microwave would use. This is one tip that you and your taste buds are sure to appreciate.

Put down the controller.

Video game consoles use more energy than you might think. Step outside and toss the pig skin around with your kids or set up the hockey goal that’s been stuck in the corner of your garage for the last 3 years. Your Fortnite high score will still be there tomorrow.

Wear clothes more than once between washes.

Why not live a little? Wearing lightly worn clothes more than once can help reduce the number of laundry loads you have to do. You'll know it's time to do a load of laundry when you find a sticky-note stuck to your back labeled, "Captain Stinkopotamus".
