Green Baxter
  • Use fans to circulate air while raising the thermostat setting
  • Turn off ceiling fans when you leave the room
  • Close draperies to block the sun's rays and heat
  • Wash and rinse clothes in cold water
  • Set your hot water heater to 120 degrees
  • Install a programmable thermostat to help you control energy use
  • Plug electronics into central power strip and shut off when not in use
Other Ways to Help the Environment
Energy-efficient light bulbs
  • Lower your paper waste by signing up for paperless or automatic billing
  • Cut car trips - and emissions - by traveling on Metro light rail
  • When shopping, bring re-useable bags instead of asking for paper or plastic
  • Start a compost pile to make use of food scraps and clippings
Saving facts:
  • If just 8,000 Arizona homes installed more energy-efficient AC, we could save enough energy to light every home in Yuma for a year.
  • If every household in America replaced just one light bulb with a CFL, we'd save enough energy to light every home in Arizona for a year.
  • If just 10% of homes in Arizona had solar water heaters, it would reduce greenhouse gas emissions equal to taking 57,000 cars off the road.
  • If just 15% of APS customers chose electricity made from renewable resources like wind and solar, it would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2.7 million tons every year.
  • Leaving your car at home just two days a week will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by an average of 1,600 pounds per year.
