There are many ways to reduce electricity usage without too much trouble. Saving electricity can be as simple as switching off the lights before you leave the room. Or you could make sure to maximize the space in your dishwasher so that nothing is wasted. Shorter showers is also a good habit because heating water uses electricity.
