NIPSCO-Residential-ProgramsWhile you're preparing for holiday cooking, keep in mind these easy tips to help reduce your energy consumption in the kitchen:

1) Give your stovetop and oven a thorough cleaning to assure more economical and efficient operation.
2) Plan oven meals and grill meals to accommodate more than one dish at a time, and time your baking for multiple purposes.
3) Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven. It can reduce the oven’s efficiency by interfering with air circulation.
