November 2016 Holiday Home Tips from SDG&E

With Daylight Savings Time ending, lighting your home earlier in the evening can increase your energy use and cost. This November, plan ahead to make the holiday season brighter, safer & more affordable. 

Make the Season Bright

Did you know? One of the easiest ways to lower your electricity use is to switch to energy-efficient lighting like LEDs. 

Here are four (4) reasons to make the switch to light-emitting diodes (LEDs): 

1. Are less likely to break because they have no moving parts, filaments or glass

2. Reduce fire risk because they remain cool to the touch

3. Can last up to 10 times longer so you save on replacement costs

4. Use up to 90% less electricity to produce the same amount of light as incandescent light bulbs and strands.

Before you decorate your home for the holidays, be sure to browse the wide selection of LED holiday lights available in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes at major retailers, home improvement stores and online stores.

Make the Season Safer

Before you count your blessings this holiday season, keep your natural gas appliances in safe working condition by signing up for a gas appliance check-up online. Select your date, set up your appointment and provide some additional information. It’s that easy. Best of all, this service is free of charge to SDG&E customers! http://www.sdge.com/residential/serviceorders

Make the Holiday Season More Affordable

Last summer, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approved a new electric rate structure that's being phased in through 2020. California’s energy utilities are changing the way they charge for energy based on when you use it. Find out more about how energy rates are changing in San Diego: http://www.sdge.com/whenergy
