If you have 5 minutes and your energy bills are handy, you can find out how your home's energy use measures up.
You can use the ENERGY STAR Home Energy Yardstick to compare your home's energy efficiency to similar homes across the country and get recommendations for energy-saving home improvements from ENERGY STAR. You will also need to enter some basic information about your home (such as zip code, age, square footage, and number of occupants).
TIP: The bottom left-hand corner of your MEA bill contains a 12-month
history of your electricity consumption. Contact MEA Customer Service
if you do not have your bill handy.
