Conserving energy is the key to saving money on electricity bills

Posted: Updated:

(KYTX) - Experts told East Texans today that energy demand is growing rapidly and that all of us should take steps to cut down on electricity use.

Conservation was a key topic at the energy innovation conference held in Tyler.

One big reason is that the state's population is booming and that people are still moving to Texas at near record numbers.

They said the second reason is that we have so many more electronics in our homes. We are plugging in all kinds of televisions, personal computers and even printers.

They said that most of us have at least 25 devices that run off electricity.

They said to think about your biggest electricity user, typically it's your heating and air conditioning system and large appliances.

If everyone purchased the most energy efficient models possible, kept them properly maintained, the consumer would see immediate cost savings and it would lower state electricity demand.
