Why Should I Turn Off The Lights?

Electricity has become such an integrated part of how we live that we use it without thinking. Turn on a light and the room becomes flooded with light. The only time we think about it is when it doesn’t work, like when the light bulb is burned out or something is wrong with the switch, or when the electricity goes off.

The electricity goes off with more frequency these days, but when we have electricity, why should we turn off the lights?

There are several reasons.

First, it will save us money and more money than we might think.Is this new to you? Catch up.  Even with power saving bulbs, it takes electricity to run them. When we turn them off, we’re not paying for that electricity.

Turning off the lights will lighten the load on the power grid. Much of America’s power grid can be in trouble in times of high demand. Cutting back where we can helps.

By doing that, we can cut back on the amount of fuel used, whether it’s coal, water or nuclear. Keeping the use of those resources low is good for nature which is good for us.

Think about that the next time you leave the light burning when you leave a room.
