A new study suggests it’s possible to cut electricity consumption by up for up to 20% while still meeting your energy needs.
The study, conducted by a team of researchers at the University of Wisconsin, found that consumers can cut their power bills by up the following percentage points using a mix of different strategies:Energy efficiency (using smart appliances) and cutting back on household energy use (like using solar panels or batteries instead of electricity) can cut down on your energy bill by 20% in a few months.
Other methods include using smart thermostats to reduce your energy use and buying a smaller car to save energy.
The researchers have also used a new tool called “Power Grid” to help consumers estimate their energy bills, with each tool measuring how much electricity consumers are using, and whether they are using the correct amount of electricity per day or per month.
While the study did not directly address the specific measures used in the study, it suggested that consumers could cut down by up 30% without any significant effect on their bills.
The team also found that the biggest savings for households in the long run could come from energy efficiency.
While that could mean a small increase in electricity usage in the short run, it could also mean the energy savings could help pay for other energy efficiency measures.
In the short term, energy efficiency and solar energy can save energy that could be used for other things like lighting and heating.
In addition to saving electricity, these strategies can also help consumers save money on other bills.
The study found that for households with an annual household income of less than $20,000, energy efficient and solar devices can save up to $150 per year.
That means savings of $3,200 per year, or a savings of about $50 a month.
For households with annual household incomes of $50,000 or more, energy-efficient appliances can save about $1,200 annually.
That’s a savings rate of more than 30%.
The study did find that some households with energy-intensive appliances could save up $3.50 per month, but that was because of other savings that would only be available if the household did not use energy-efficiency devices, which are often associated with higher bills.
