5 Things to Look for in a New Home for Maximum Energy Efficiency

Electric Supplier

While there’s often not much you can do about choosing an electric supplier – since few, if any, companies compete in the same area – you can check with your local supplier to see where they source their energy and, in many cases, request that your fuels come from alternative sources (like solar or wind). It’s an easy way to support alternative fuels without making major capital improvements to your home.
