Tip Number Three: If You’re Not Using it, Turn it Off
Going solar can be a bit of a challenge when it comes to lighting and electronics, so the easiest way to save energy is to remember to turn things off. From lights, to televisions, to chargers, something is constantly running. A few easy things to do include turning off lights that you are not using, powering down your laptops and game systems at night, setting the sleep timer on your television, and unplugging lit power cords, such as cell phone chargers, when they are not in use. Lighting is something that is so easily overlooked because it feels natural to us. However, lighting a candle or using natural light can save a lot of energy and be peaceful.
