How to save money on your utility bills

Rounding it up

  • Canadians spend a lot of money on electricity, especially since we are spending more time at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Saving money on energy costs starts at home. Remember to turn off the lights, minimize water consumption, and use cooking alternatives to lower your utility bill.

  • You can also opt for ENERGY STAR certified items when shopping for home appliances; these products promise superb energy efficiency.

  • There are government rebates and incentives that reward the energy efficient — make use of them to help the environment and your wallet.
