Conservation

WMLP has partnered with  Energy New England to help the Wellesley reach its residential energy efficiency goals. An energy assessment will help you learn where you are using energy and what you can do to lower that usage. Less usage equals less money and reduces your carbon footprint.

Where Does My Money Go


One of the first things to determine is how much energy do I use? EnergyStar answers the question "Where does my money go" with this graph. By looking at where energy dollars go in the average household you can begin to focus on certain areas that can help you save energy and dollars.

By looking at your most recent electric bill you can see how many kilowatts you used each month for the past thirteen months. Ask yourself is it in line with what you used this month last year. If it has increased could it be because an appliance is breaking down and it is taking more energy to keep it working? Or are your conservation efforts working and you can see a reduction?

The average household in Wellesley uses over 990 kWh per month. While the average in Massachusetts (non-electric heating) household uses just over 550 kWh. Where do you fall in this mix?
