Cut Your Watts exists to enable you to reduce your electricity use. That is why we are independent of utility companies and contractors. We have no interest in sham solutions to high electric bills or selling you new windows with an electricity payback period of 50 years. We want you to see lower electric bills quickly and tell your friends.
August 27, 2015
How much can I save on my electric bill? It depends on your electricity use, ability to analyze your use, and how you choose to address your findings. It is common for someone with a $100 electric bill to cut that to $90 with minimal effort.
Are there other benefits besides reducing my electric bill? Yes, when your electric bill goes down, somewhere a power plant will burn less fossil fuel and reduce pollution. Even if you have already reduced your electric use as much as you can, you may still enjoy knowing which things in your home are using the most (or least) electricity.

We will not sell it or share it with anyone else without your explicit permission (unless we are forced to by law).
Any information that you post publicly, for example on the Cut Our Watts Facebook group, will be available to anyone who has access to that content, including other users.

You pay the price you see. There are no hidden fees. We think it's burdensome to change prices for varying shipping charges and sales taxes, so we include them in the prices posted. We only ship within the United States.

We hope that everything you receive from us works perfectly. If that is not the case, please contact us so that we can determine the best way to proceed. We do not manufacture anything, but we sell only products that we expect will work well. We like to know when products we sell break, but you can always return your product to the manufacturer for their warranty service if you like. In some cases we may simply replace your product without asking you to send the problem unit back, please tell us how you would prefer to proceed any time you have a problem.
