Going Green in Harrisonburg

Unplug electrical appliances when you are not using them. If you are energy savvy you have your PC/MAC / Television plugged into a power strip which you use to turn off everything together. Any appliance with a remote, light, or clock uses electricity when turned off in order to be “warmed up” when you hit the on button. A television uses the same amount of electricity a 60 watt light bulb uses even when the TV is turned off.  Easy small changes to your home will save you at the end of the year and if we all make the changes, we will see huge differences in our total electricity consumption.
