How to reduce your energy bill by 80% in just three minutes – MTV News
A new survey of 1,000 adults by energy research firm Statista found that if you were a millennial, your total energy bill could drop by 80%.
But if you’re over 35 and live in a city where the average electricity bill is $100, that number would drop to about $20.
The research firm looked at energy consumption in all 50 US cities, as well as in 20 other countries around the world.
It found that people aged 18 to 29 spend about 60% of their energy on electricity and the energy in the city was about three times what it is in the countryside.
And while electricity usage has been falling, so has energy consumption per person.
That’s because people tend to live closer to work and their homes are usually more compact.
It’s not all bad news for millennials, though.
In fact, the average energy bill per person is lower than it was in the mid-2000s, when it was $150 per year, according to Statista.
While that may seem like a lot of money, Statista also found that energy use in cities has dropped as well.
In cities with a population of about 3 million people, energy usage was only 3.7% lower in the first quarter of this year than in the same period last year.
In other words, if you live in one of the US’s largest cities, your energy consumption is less than it would have been in the early 2000s.
The same goes for electricity, too.
Energy usage per person dropped from 2.4 kWh per day in 2011 to 1.9 kWh per person in 2015.
Statista says that’s partly due to the economic downturn and partly due a decline in the use of gas-powered generators, which make up the majority of the country’s electricity.
As for your energy bills, you can reduce your monthly bills by up to 80% with just three simple steps.
These are as follows:If you live near a power plant, your utility company might charge you for your excess electricity and gas.
If your utility charges you for the electricity, you’ll have to pay for the gas yourself.
If you live farther away from a power station, it might be cheaper to have the power from your home or business go into storage.
If the power is still in storage, you might be able to purchase electricity from a local supplier.
If you have a lot more than one car and don’t want to buy your own, a carpooling service might be the best way to save money.
This is particularly useful if you don’t live in an apartment or home.
If your utility is charging you for excess electricity, it may be worth considering buying energy-efficient appliances and gadgets.
These could save you money in the long run.

You can also consider buying your energy in bulk.
Statistas said that people in the US spent about $50 per year on energy-intensive products in 2015, compared to $40 per year in 2012.
And if you want to save more, you could consider going solar, which produces its own electricity.
Statistics found that US households that used less than 1% of the nation’s energy to generate their own electricity spent $40 a year less than households that generated 25% of that energy.
The survey is part of Statista’s Energy Consumption survey, which surveyed 1,200 adults in March and April of this years.
Statistans CEO, Dr Matthew Johnson, said in a statement that the findings of the study were based on “an accurate, nationally representative sample of the U.S. population”.
