Introduction

In today’s economy, there are more reasons than ever to cut your energy bill. One of the most popular ways to do so is to invest in renewable energy to power all or part of your home. But, even if you don’t have the resources to install a full photovoltaic solar kit on your roof, there are dozens of other ways to cut your bills, save money, and generally be more kind to Mother Earth.

That’s what we’re going to talk about – the strategies that frugal homeowners and ecoconscious members of society are using to hack at their energy use once and for all. That includes cutting down on your power bill in as many ways as possible; installing green energy sources such as solar panels, solar heat and windmills; or simply cutting back on your food bill and other expenses. 

The nation has had a wakeup call when it comes to our financial future. We cannot sustain endless spending and debt. If you’ve joined the ever-growing revolution and want to cut your bills, keep reading – it’s time to rethink what you use and how you use it. This isn’t just about your checkbook – it’s about the future of our planet and everyone on it. I can’t think of a better reason to start making changes. 

Some people never stop and think about where their money is going. They spend indiscriminately, throwing cash into the dustbin instead of setting it aside for retirement, college or other expenses that are almost sure to come up in the future. 

In today’s economy, with our energy sources running lower by the year, it won’t long be possible to ignore changes that you need to make in your spending habits. So, sit down with your family, review your expenses, and start slashing them down to size. Review the renewable energy you could be using right now and how much less energy you could be using with some simple, pain-free changes.

Trust me, the grumbling will die down. The right habits might even mean an extra vacation or a few extra outings with the kids. Saving money is only a small part of the equation, but for your family, it can make all the difference.
