Subtract the number of kWh or therms you used this year from the number you used last year to find your energy savings and write it here: ________________________
Multiply the number of kWh or therms you saved by the current price per kWh or therm to find your dollar savings and write it here: ________________________
(Note: If the price of your energy went up, this year’s bill may be higher than last year’s, but energy saved will still show up in fewer kWh or therms used.)
If you saved energy: Congratulations! Ask your parents to pass the dollar savings on to you!
If you didn’t save energy: Try to figure out why. Was this year hotter or colder than last year? Were extra people living in your home this year? Were you away on vacation part of last year? What other reasons can you think of that might have made you use more energy this year compared to last year?
