What is Energy Efficiency?
According to Energy.gov, energy efficiency is the use of less energy to perform the same task or produce the same result. Energy-efficient homes and buildings use less energy to cool, heat and run appliances and other electronics. In addition, energy-efficient manufacturing facilities and buildings use less energy to produce goods and services.
Why is Energy Efficiency Important?
Energy efficiency is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to meet your energy needs while reducing your energy costs. Because producing and running energy releases a lot of carbon emissions, by reducing your energy consumption, it helps reduce pollution, increase air quality, and conserve our resources and protect our environment.
How Can I Do My Part?
There are many ways you can get involved. You can participate by posting on social media about the benefits of energy efficiency, join a local energy efficient event or committee in your community, or use energy efficiency technologies to cut down energy waste at home.
