Well, it had been a month since we had unplugged our refrigerator in the garage and made a few other changes to save energy and keep our electric bill down this summer. You can find the complete post here.
Though I never look forward to getting my electric bill I was curious to see if the changes we made would make a big difference. I was pleasantly surprised. Our bill for the previous month which included most of June which was fairly mild was $194. We had run our a/c but not daily. The latest bill where we had ran the air everyday was only $4 more. I was so excited.
To be able to run the air and keep the bill down that much was so worth the efforts. We will definitely unplug the fridge in the garage for the summers from now on. It really has not been hard to squeeze everything in. I mostly just have not bought more than the meat I need for the week. That bill should have easily been much more.
