Celebrities drive Smart cars, and Al Gore has told us that global warming will cause havoc for us, but is anyone listening to what these celebrities have to say? Forget the famous people and continue reading this article for some tips and tricks, which will help you to use green energy to your advantage.

  • If you want to preserve energy, keep your windows, so they are shaded from sunlight. Using curtains or blinds is an excellent way to block unwanted sunlight. By doing these things, you'll lower the amount you need to run your air conditioner in the summer, as your home will already be cooler. Energy and money are both saved this way.
  • Go green on your coffee break by bringing your cup. If you usually order a Tall Latte at Starbucks, get a tall re-usable coffee mug with you. Every time you ask your favorite coffee shop to mix your drink in your cup, you are helping to green your environment.
  • Use solar-powered outdoor lights. Outdoor lighting elements are a great place to use solar power since there is easy access to sunlight. There is a wide range of lighting options to fit any decor. Not only does the solar-powered feature save on your energy bill, but it also makes these lights easy to install anywhere on your property.
  • If you plan to go green in your home, you may want to consider contacting your utility provider to learn about your options. They may have some great suggestions for you to look into. If they do not have the options for you, they can direct you to where you can find them.
  • If you want to make better use of energy in your home but aren't sure where to start, schedule a home energy audit from a professional auditor. These auditors can thoroughly investigate your home and suggest ways to reduce your energy consumption with green technology and other improvements.
  • In some areas of the world, people can sign up for wind and geothermal energy from their power supplier. This is usually a little more money, but it is green energy that you are buying and do not have to invest in the machinery to make it. This helps relieve the stress of fossil fuels by your energy company.
  • Wash your clothes in cold water. Clothes come just as clean if you use cold water instead of hot water, and making the switch can save a lot of energy. Most of the energy used to wash clothes is the energy the water heater uses to heat the water.
  • Think about getting a hybrid car. Electric cars have many flaws, including the low number of charging stations. You can use either gas or electric power with a hybrid car, depending on what is available. Invest in a hybrid vehicle if you live close to a charging station or can get your own.
  • Green energy is a sector that is developing quickly. Suppose you find that getting a solar roof or a wind turbine is not an option for you at the moment. Stay up to date with innovations. The chances are that better solutions will be available in the years to come.
  • As a business owner, you can benefit from attractive tax incentives by adopting green energies. Avoid any fossil fuel emanation, including oil, coal, and natural gas. Using green energies will give a positive image of your brand and will help you save money in the long run if you decide to invest in your green energy system.
  • Replace an old washing machine with a high-efficiency model for a greener way to do your laundry. High-efficiency machines come in both top-loading and front-loading designs that use less water than standard machines. They also spin clothes at high speeds to wring more water out of them, helping them dry faster.
  • Try using programmable thermostats to save energy inside your home. These let you adjust when you can turn on your heater or air-conditioning according to the schedule you set up. As a result, you're not operating anything as much when you're not home or when you're asleep.
  • Installing storm windows can go a long way in helping you save on energy costs. There are both interior and exterior options to choose from. Installing storm windows is said to save you anywhere from twenty-five to fifty percent of heat loss. Make sure to add weather-stripping at movable joints of the storm windows.
  • Develop the habit of shutting off your computer before leaving your home for several hours and before you go to sleep each day to make your home a greener one. Also, set your computer's sleep mode to activate when it is idle for five minutes. If you faithfully practice these two simple acts daily, you can decrease the energy usage of your computer by 85%.
  • When you can, take showers rather than baths. Running a bath uses up to 40% more water than a shower does, which means more energy is being used, and your water bill will skyrocket. If you insist on using a bath, let it fill up and then turn the water off.
  • If you are building a home, consider the placement of your windows carefully. If you place windows in the right areas of a home, they can act as a passive solar energy collector. This means that your windows can help you keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the window. You will reduce your electric bill and your dependence on traditional energy sources.
  • While solar energy may not be a whole-house option for your home, consider a partial solar set-up that can offset part of your utility consumption. For instance, you may purchase enough panels to heat your home's water.

Whether it's a celebrity, politician, or scientist, many people are trying to get the populace educated on the problems we will face, thanks to global warming. It's great that you're taking the time to learn what you can do to help, so put the tips you've read here to use and get started today!
