Simple Ways to Go Green and Save Money

Going green is good for the environment and doesn’t have to be hard on your wallet. In this blog, we explore simple ways to go green and save money.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – there are several ways to reduce your consumption and recycle what you use, which can lower your energy use and expenses. Here are a few examples:

  • Limit purchases to mostly only what you need
  • Borrow items, especially for one-use projects
  • Utilize the library instead of purchasing items like books or movies
  • Avoid disposable products like paper napkins and plastic baggies

Assess your energy use – an excellent way to understand where your home or business may need tweaks for energy efficiency is to perform an energy audit. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a convenient calculator which can show you the impact of energy efficiency on your carbon footprint.

An energy-efficient home helps control the spend of your energy and money. AEP Energy Reward Store offers a host of connected home and energy efficient products for your home.

Enroll in a renewable energy plan – of course, enrolling in a renewable energy plan, such as a REC-based plan or even solar energy is affordable and a great way to go green! AEP Energy offers a variety of green energy options.
