How to Hack Your Electric Bill.

How to Hack Your Electric BillIn 2008, according to the Energy Information Agency, the national average for residential monthly electric bills was $95.66. Today? The national average has increased to $163 and continues to rise. With large investor-owned utility corporations handing out new rounds of rate hikes, the situation isn’t going to get any better.

So, how do you combat the issue or learn to manage the amount you see on your bill each month? Through a few simple electric bill hacks! Hack One: batch and shut off your electronics. In one year’s time through the methodical practice of unplugging devices when they’re not in use or while you’re away (like your printer, surge protector, computer screen, TV and DVD player) - you save $78.73 per year!

Want an even easier solution? Automate! With that amount of savings in one year, you can more than cover the purchase price of convenient technology that allows you to schedule regular shutdowns in real time using digital calendars - making the task as simple as picking up your smart phone. In one year, the device pays for itself and makes your life a whole lot easier!

Saving money using simple methods that don’t interrupt the sometimes fast paced flow we’ve all grown accustomed to is one of the reasons we think this hack could be the best of the year.

Fixed our outside meter box. Less than 2 hours work.

They did wonderful. Alabama Power was a little hard to deal with, but they arranged everything. Pretty good communication. I thought they were a little pricey, even with the coupon. They made the repairs and the power was back on in less than two hours.
