SCE&G Spring/Summer Energy Savings Tips
Let SCE&G help you take control of your energy bills. To get you started, we've  compiled a variety of tips to help you be more energy efficient.

  1. Set your thermostat to 78F or higher in the summer. Each degree lower can significantly increase your cooling costs.

  2. Programmable thermostats allow you to conveniently maintain the comfort of your home when you're there and reduce energy costs when you're not.

  3. Have your central air conditioning system serviced annually by a professional. This can extend the life of the system while maintaining optimum efficiency.
