    With temperatures staying high in August, here are five tips to save on your electricity bill:

    1. Unplug unused electronic devices: One can forget this very easy power saving tip. Whether it is your TV, Laptop or even your toaster, unplugging unused electronics can lead to savings on your electric bill.
    2. Use a clothesline instead of a dryer: A dryer can tend to use a lot of electricity and also gives off a lot of heat. Setup a clothesline instead as it will help you save and also give you an excuse to go outside!
