But there is a growing movement across the country to reduce these unnecessary charges as much as possible. The trend first started when budget-strapped cities began outfitting highway signs and street lights with solar photovoltaic (PV) technology. Rather than rely exclusively on the utility grid, these local governments realized they could illuminate their communities using clean and free sunshine. And far from being an expensive upgrade, replacing grid-tied lamps with solar powered alternatives turned out to be an affordable investment that quickly paid for itself. In the past 5 years, solar costs have come down even more, bringing the technology within easy reach of everyone. Better still, the payback periods are even shorter.
Of course, every improvement in energy efficiency helps. But for truly optimal savings, you must expand your thinking. Instead of focusing on improvements exclusively within the home, you should view your entire property as one energy-consuming unit. The lamp posts and lights in your garden, for example, are major electricity hogs that often get overlooked. Out-of-sight and out-of-mind, they're easy to forget - even by trained and licensed energy auditors. And yet, these very lights carry tremendous potential for long-term electricity bill reductions.
