we pretty much do all of these already. it's easy to find more by searching for ways to improve or lessen household energy.

We're bad about unplugging the chargers. Will need to work on that this year. Problem with power stripping /turning off the plasma TV is that it takes so long to re-program that it's just easier to leave it plugged in. Our big energy saver is the clothes line, and turning up the temperature on the air conditioner as well as sun-shade screens and reflective mini-blinds.

The one tip that I have always got conflicting opinions is whether to leave your computer on sleep, or turn it off. I have been told, all the energy you saved by turning off your computer you have wasted by having to turn it back on.

Many computer tv combinations are meant to be receiving a trickle charge. I use surge protectors but never turn them off. The pennies I might save are worth it not to have that problems not mentioning the re-programming.

It helps to turn on only the appliances and lights that you need and turn them off as soon as you no longer need them. Why leave the TV and lights on when you leave the room or even the house? Why have a fridge larger than you need?
