Aside from programs we can sign up for to help curb our monthly bills, like using less energy during peak demand times, Uncle Sam doesn’t offer us much help, especially when they seem to hide these options inside an enormous amount of confusing text, meeting all their restrictions and multiple requirements, blah, blah, blah.
