Conserving electricity doesn't just help the environment, it helps save money as well.
That's why Newfoundland Power and Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro teamed up to deliver takeCHARGE, a program designed to teach you about saving energy.

advantage of rebates!

But first, let us get you started with some simple tips:

  • Set thermostats back by 5 degrees at night or when you're not at home.
  • Unplug computers, TVs, stereos and other electronic devices when you go on vacation. Because of their standby feature, they consume energy even when not in use.
  • Wash and rinse your laundry in cold water.
  • Clean your dryer lint trap after each load to decrease drying time.
  • Buy an electric kettle with an automatic shut off.
  • Replace incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs.
