Saving cash is a big concern for many in the current economic climate

US energy group Georgia Power has issued a number of tips people can keep in mind that will help keep bills low and reduce their carbon footprint at the same time.

Although some would argue this summer has not been as warm hoped, it is noted that air conditioning and thermostat levels should be monitored as these can be a big draw on electricity.

Shopping for more efficient gadgets is also recommended and these are often labelled as such - those looking for a green mobile phone may like to consider the Motorola W233 Renew.

In addition, proper attic insulation "can reduce heat loss [or] gain by up to 28 per cent" and microwaves or pressure cookers are a better cooking option that firing up the oven.

The Motorola W233 Renew is partially made from recycled plastic bottles and is designed to be a much greener option than standard mobile phones.
