Use CFLs and diodes for light...use more ventilation, fans, volume of house for cooling...make it a rule to switch off (fully) any unused device/gadget...keep the vehicles serviced...drive when necessary or use vehicles judiciously...solar panels may be used...dispose off old gadgetry/vehicles as tech has advanced..

Switch off lights,fans etc when not necessary, use energy saving tube lights, fridges, etc etc and plant trees so that fresh air comes inside the house.

Allow me to copy paste:
To conserve energy one should switch to the lesser consuming electricity gadgets. At the same time, one should use lesser electrical energy which is being produced by burning coal. That is, one should be encouraged to use solar power (of course who can afford it!!), try and not to use dish washer, washing machines (which consume more water and electricity), use cars in need (use public transport instead or use pool-cars), plant more and more trees, use pressure cookers during cooking etc.
