Environment Maryland Releases Clean Energy Guide

BALTIMORE (AP) — If you’re looking to lower your energy use to save the environment or just to save money, Environment Maryland has some tips.

The environmental organization is releasing Friday — in time for Earth Day — a guide to energy saving.

Tips range from lowering the thermostat in the winter to help with installing rooftop solar panels. Information is also provided on the most energy-efficient household appliance choices and Maryland programs to help residents with energy conservation and clean energy systems.

Environment Maryland says turning down thermostats in the winter saves 3 percent on your gas bill for every degree, and the savings are greater when the thermostat is turned up in the summer to cut air conditioning use.
