Going Green in Huntington Beach …

There’s no better time to ‘Go Green’ in Huntington Beach than on Earth Day!   Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Adjust your thermostat dial and turn up energy savings.  Setting your thermostat to keep air conditioning at 78F when it’s hot outside, and your heating system at 68F when it’s cold, can help save up to 20% in heating and cooling costs. 
  • Turn off unneeded lights.  Avoid lighting an empty room and take advantage of natural light whenever possible.
  • Replace standard incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs and save 75% of lighting costs.
  • Unplug electronics, battery chargers and other equipment when not in use.  These small items can use as much energy as your refrigerator.
