Remember that one piece of advice your mother always yelled at you every time you left the room? She may have been smarter than you think…
It’s not just environmentally conscious to pay attention to your electricity usage, it’s economically conscious. One of the biggest money wasters is electricity that’s being left on when you’re no longer in the room.
