Nueces Electric is pleased to be able to help our residential customers use energy more efficiently. Using more efficient products in our daily lives is one way each of us can make a difference, and this online store makes it easy.

Take Action...

Replacing a 100 watt incandescent light bulb with a 25 watt compact fluorescent bulb will save 135 kWh of electricity annually, and can reduce associated carbon dioxide emission by 193 pounds (based on 5 hours per day use and 1.43 lbs CO2/kWh).

Commonly available 2.5 gpm "water-saving" showerheads aren't really water-saving, since this flow-rate is probably what you already have. Putting in a 1.75 gpm showerhead, however, will reduce your water use by 2,737 gallons a year (assuming a 10 minute daily shower).

Putting outdoor lights on a wall switch timer is a great way to save energy - but if you don't adjust the timer seasonally it will turn on too early in the summer or too late in the winter. A solar timetable switch will automatically adjust based on your longitude and latitude, helping insure that lights are only on when needed.
