Our Power Energy Tip of the Week
People ask if it’s worth it to buy more energy efficient – and often more expensive – appliances and other household items. You need to look at the payback period -- the amount of time you must use an appliance or system before you begin to benefit from energy savings. For example, if you buy an Energy STAR washing machine that costs $100 more, but uses $20 less electricity each year, you would begin saving money after five years. Your payback period would be five years. Since most appliances last at least 10 years, you would save $100 over the life of the appliance and reduce your carbon footprint as well. For more information, contact Nancy Axelrod, Cherry Hill’s Energy Outreach Coordinator at 856-432-8741 or naxelrod@chtownship.com.
