You rely on your electricity for so much; you use it for lighting, cooking, cleaning, entertaining, and so much more. Imagine how inconvenient life would be without electricity! However, despite how much easier electricity makes your life, the idea of spending so much money on powering your home makes you feel a bit sick to your stomach – and understandably so.
The good news is that you can lower your electric bill without having to forego convenience. Here’s a look at some simple ways that you can slash your energy use – and your bills – and still enjoy all of the benefits that electricity provides.
If you’re like most homeowners in varLocationName, varStateShort, heating and cooling probably account for the bulk of your energy bill. While you want to keep your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer, you don’t have to shell out big bucks to maintain your comfort.
To reduce the amount you spend on heating and cooling, try these simple tips:
Washing machines and dryers use a tremendous amount of energy, even energy-efficient models. By making some simple adjustments, you can keep your clothes clean and lower your electric bill.
A dishwasher is certainly a handy appliance, but if you aren’t using it wisely, you’ll end up paying more than you need to. Enjoy the convenience of not having to hand-wash your dishes without spending a fortune.
Did you know that even when you aren’t using your TV, your computer, or your gaming system, they’re still using power? It’s true! These electronics are serious power drains even when they aren’t in use.
To lower your electric bill, unplug these devices when you aren’t using them. If it’s too much of a hassle to unplug each individual device, connect them to a power strip and turn it off when you aren’t watching TV, gaming, or surfing the Web.
By making these simple changes, you can see significant savings on your electric bill. What’s more, you won’t be inconvenienced. Now that’s a win-win situation!

Montauk is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) in the Town of East Hampton in Suffolk County, New York, on the eastern end of the South Shore of Long Island. As of the 2010 United States census, the CDP’s population was 3,326.
Montauk derives its name from the Montaukett tribe, an Algonquian-speaking tribe who lived in the area. In 1614, Dutch explorer Adriaen Block encountered the tribe at Montauk Point, which he named Hoeck van de Visschers, or “Point of the Fishers”. Two decades later, in 1637, the Montauketts sided for their own protection with the New England settlers in the Pequot War in Connecticut. In the aftermath the Montauketts were to sell Gardiners Island. In 1648 what would become the Town of Easthampton (first Maidstone) was sold to settlers by the colony of Connecticut and the colony of New Haven while retaining the lands to the east, from the hills rising above where the first fort stood (Napeague, New York) to Montauk Point. The western boundary of today’s Hither Hills State Park is also known as the 1648 purchase line.
In 1653, Narragansetts under Ninigret attacked and burned the Montaukett village, killing 30 and capturing one of Chief Wyandanch’s daughters. The daughter was recovered with the aid of Lion Gardiner (who in turn was given a large portion of Smithtown, New York in appreciation). The Montauketts, ravaged by smallpox and fearing extermination by the Narragansetts, were provided temporary refuge by white settlers in East Hampton. Many short but famous battles ensued. The skirmishes ended in 1657. Fort Pond Bay derives its name from a Montaukett “fort” on its shore. A deed was issued in 1661 titled “Ye deed of Guift” which granted all of the lands east of Fort Pond to be for the common use of both the Indians and the townsmen.
Further purchase agreements were entered into in 1661, 1672 and 1686 which, among other things, allowed a group of Easthampton townsmen to graze cattle on the Montaukett lands. While some lands were protected in the agreements as forest land, for the most part, all of Montauk was maintained by the townsmen as a private livestock and fisheries operation. As a result of Montauk being operated as a livestock operation, it is considered to be the oldest cattle ranch in the United States.Learn more about Montauk.
