Resources For
Renters

Just because you do not own your home or apartment does not mean you cannot control your residential energy use! The following links offer no cost and low cost ideas to lower your utility bills. Some of these strategies require a change in your habits and cost nothing while others require small initial investments that will likely pay for themselves in energy savings over time.   And when it is time to move, you can either leave the improvements intact and sell them to the future tenants or take them with you to your next home. http://energy.ces.ncsu.edu/resources-for-renters/
