There are so many ways to reduce energy consumption at home. A simple unplugging of your electric appliances when not in used can do a lot of wonders therefore reducing your energy consumption. You can also entertain the idea of setting up solar panels if you have a budget, by doing that you're also helping the environment and at the same time reducing your trickle consumption.

Just in time, our community engage in energy management plan which consist of waste reduction, use of energy efficiency portfolios and others. This is a community effort which is being supported by our local government who funded the project after thorough study and research.

I agree that solar panels are awesome, Lisa. But typically people that get them use more, not less energy. Nevertheless, they do help the environment and reduce stress on electrical grids.
