  • Drive less. Bike and walk more—and practice eco-driving by observing speed limits, avoiding excess idling, carpooling, and following other guidelines set by the U.S. Forest Service.
  • Drive a new or used hybrid, plug-in, or electric vehicle.
  • Enroll in Xcel Energy’s Windsource Program or subscribe to a community solar garden, which can reduce your energy bills.
  • Buy appliances with high Energy Star ratings and switch from gas to electric models when possible.
