    Is this a new habit for you? Have you noticed anything around NWN that we could improve on for energy savings?

    I am really trying to teach my kids to turn off lights that they are not using - its turned into a bit of a game with the family and friendly calling each other out if someone forgets!

      That's awesome! When I was a kid my parents incentivized saving electricity by every month looking at our utility bills together, and if my sister and I helped use less energy that month that the corresponding month the previous year. If we had used less that month, my sister and I got the difference in spending to keep!

    Today is a great day to unplug and take a walk before all the rain comes - everyone have a great day!
