When utility bills are skyrocketing, it’s insulting to tell people to just put on an extra sweater

Oscar Wilde once said: “To recommend thrift to the poor is both grotesque and insulting. It’s like advising a starving man to eat less.” In a way, this is similar to many daytime television articles and guest interviews that offer advice on how to reduce electricity bills for the modest public.

Some of these suggestions are well-intentioned, but many just don’t work. I’ve often looked for ways to reduce electricity bills, and the first suggestion in many of these articles is to simply install solar panels. Reader, I rent an apartment on the fifth floor of a seven story building, I have neither the physical nor the financial capacity to spend a few thousand bucks on solar panels for a rental in North Wall.
