Not a big fan of the dog days of summer?

TURN IT UP
Set the thermostat to 78° (or 80° when not home), especially from 3 to 7 p.m. Save as much as 10% on your bill.

TURN ’EM OFF
Lights can eat up a chunk of your electric bill. If you're leaving the room, close curtains to block the sun's heat.

WISE UP
Upgrade to a programmable or smart thermostat to better control your temperature settings. A smart thermostat lets you remotely adjust the temperature and some can even learn and adapt to your habits.

TRACK YOUR USE
Log in to your online account at bluebonnet.coop or on our mobile app and see how much electricity you’re using. Try the tips and see how much your power use drops.

KILL THE VAMPIRES
Gadgets silently eat electricity, even in standby mode. Plug them into an advanced power strip and turn them off when not in use.

LEAVE THE HOUSE
Can’t stand 78°? Go someplace cool during the hottest part of the day: the library, grocery store, mall, gym, coffee shop.
