It seems that America’s recession as generated some good news for people seeking ways of making cuts on the IDT Energy or other utility service provider bills.  According to a survey conducted by the Deloitte Center for Energy Solutions, Americans are trying to find more ways to save money because of the recession and one method they are focused on is energy-efficiency. If conducted well, this will have a domino affect of reducing one’s IDT Energy bills.

Even while America and the global economy is seeing some recovery, there is still a fear that things could go awry again and thus people are wary of getting too comfortable; hence they want to keep reducing costs wherever possible.  Given that there are many ways for one to reduce their utility bills – both at home and in the office – people are doing this, without really feeling on it.  Indeed, according to Vice Chairman of the Energy and Resources Sector at Deloitte LLP, Greg Aliff, “the recession is profoundly changing energy habits for both businesses and consumers. Using less may be the new normal, from boardroom tables to the kitchen tables.”

In November 2011 in Pennsylvania, the first Met-Ed and Penelec customers were enrolled by IDT Energy.  When it began servicing the community, IDT sent a 1,000,000 piece media insert into every residential home in the serviceable footprint.   Historically, the consumer had no choice (except for deciding whether to use Met-Ed or Penelec as their utility company including the generation and delivery of electricity to one’s home or work).  Now that has changed.  Thanks to the inauguration of the  Pennsylvania Electric Choice program, residents can choose their electricity generator supplier. Met-Ed/Penelec will continue to deliver one’s electricity to them and maintain the poles and wires.  The only difference is, consumers will be given the chance to choose their electric generation supplier by looking at the lowest price, best quality services, or a combination of the two.

Irrespective of whether the days are scorching hot or one is basking in pleasant weather conditions, there are many ways to save on one’s IDT Energy utility bills. People often think that it is just during the summer months that one can really make easy savings on utility bills, but actually the same is true for the spring.

For example, spring is the best time to check that one’s roof has proper ventilation.  Quality attic ventilation can assist in the reduction of heat buildup as the weather gets warmer which will ultimately cut cooling costs.  This leads to how to save on electricity bills vis-à-vis the air conditioner unit.  It is crucial that the air conditioner is subject to a once-a-year inspection.  Springtime is the perfect opportunity to do this.  As well, once the weather gets warmer it is likely one is using their furnace much less so if it seems that it is in need of replacement, this is the time when sales are likely to take place so take advantage of it.

So use the spring to really make a difference to your long-term IDT Energy utility bills.  Save money today.
