One of the single largest components of your electricity bill is lighting. Only using the lights when necessary is a good way to cut down on wasted electricity and conserve electricity.

Temperature control

If you have an office that uses electric radiators, or air conditioning, you will be paying out a lot of electricity money for the privilege.
