We can flatten the Climate Curve from the comfort of our couch! Here are a few simple things you can do without leaving home that can result in measurable carbon savings!
Be Safe, Be Well, B-20
If you currently heat your home with oil, switching to B-20, which is 20% biofuel as opposed to the standard B-5, can reduce your heating carbon footprint by 9-12%! That’s a significant carbon reduction by making a simple switch. In addition, you can get up to $200 in rebates. Ask yourself, WHY NOT?
We had a victory with Robison Fuel by influencing them to change the default oil they supply to B-10 (10% biodiesel), thus saving carbon across their entire customer base.
Save with LEDs
LED lights save a substantial amount of electricity. By switching out your old incandescent bulbs, you can reduce your electricity usage by 80% or more! And now you can order LED bulbs from the comfort of your couch at a SUBSTANTIAL discount from the ConEdison marketplace. I just purchased 8 light bulbs for just over $8.00 as a ConEdison customer. This is an instant carbon saver as well as a $$ saver.
At the marketplace, you can search for light bulbs and many other electrical appliances (TVs, refrigerators, washers, tablets, hot water heaters) at a great discount, all delivered to your home! WHO KNEW?
