"Making sure you turn off the lights when you leave a room or making sure instead of using an oven all the time, if you have a toaster over or microwave use that to sub out for cooking meals. And also paying attention to the supply section of your bills. Looking at how much to what you are using every month," Rajiv Ravulapati of the CUB said.
