If there is
one thing we can predict to almost 100 percent certainty, it is
that electricity prices will go up next year, if not this year.
Think about it. Even if you lead the same life style as you did
a couple of years ago, why is there such a drastic difference
in your electricity bills. Pull out your electricity bill of

rise per kilowatt that we tend to ignore should now be quite
visible on your current bill.

have a problem at hand. What can you do about it? Unless you
are Donald Trump or Bill Gates or some oil tycoon from Saudi
Arabia, you want to look for ways that answer the how to save

right place to seek help. Instead of making you feel less
fortunate by mentioning big names, let us get started with how

apologies for wanting to stick another point here before
starting with the list. Prior to implementing the changes
highlighted in the tips below, I would suggest that you get an
electricity usage monitor; it will tell you exactly how much
electricity you currently consume. This will help us to measure
