I stumbled across a widget from the Ontario government that really makes it look like the gov is taking steps to help the average home owner in living a more enviro friendly way. I was able to learn how small changes that can be done in the home can make a big difference.
For example, lowering your thermostat just 3 degrees Celsius when you are away reduces your energy use by six percent! That's less money spent on your hydro bill every month!
I took a pledge that I will always lower my thermostat when I am not home and I took a quiz to really see how environmentally friendly I was. The widget takes you to a website that has other really interesting stuff on it too- like rewards for going green! I’ll send it your way-have fun learning!
