Score energy savings at your Big Game party

Huddle up and consider these energy-saving plays before your Big Game party:

  • Tackle your old TV: Energy Star televisions are typically 25 percent more efficient than conventional models. 
  • Score an extra point with a power strip: By plugging your TV and other electronics into an advanced power strip, you can turn everything off at once. You won’t have to worry about idle electronics using phantom energy.
  • Sack your stove: Using a microwave or slow cooker to make your party food uses less energy than firing up the oven. 
  • Run a reverse on your thermostat: Setting it a few degrees lower may not be noticeable with a house full of guests warming your home naturally.
