  1. For crying out loud, it's raining outside - turn off the aircon.
  2. Go home and read a book.
  3. Throw away your television. (This will save your life too)
  4. Try out a raw food only diet
  5. Throw stones at street lamps so the municipality has an excuse to replace the bulbs with CFL bulbs.
  6. Buy a sheep to mow the lawn.
  7. Charge your cellphone in the car or use a wind-up cellphone charger.
  8. Implement Daylight Savings Time - a newly introduced change in DST in the USA is saving them an extra 3 billion kilowatt hours.
  9. Use a towel, not a hairdryer, to dry your hair.
  10. Get to know electricity better - Here is what 1 kilowatt-hour can allow you to do:
1200 electric shaves (> 3 years) or
slice 100 breads or
dry your hair 15 times or
4 TV evenings (!!!) or
listen to 15 CDs or
use a small refrigerator for 24 hours or
20 microwave meals or
drill 250 holes or
4 evenings of light with 60 W incandescent lamps or
20 evenings of light with 11 W compact fluorescent light.
