ENERGY EFFICIENCY

According to the U.S. Department of Energy,  a large portion of energy consumed in the U.S. is wasted through transmission, heat loss and inefficient technology -- costing you money as well as spiking our carbon pollution. Energy efficiency is something everyone one can do, and it is an easy, cost effective way to mitigate carbon emissions, have higher air quality, and cut costs for the community.
