Posted on Sep 21, 2017 in Hot Topics

Energy Action Month brings attention to the sustainability of our world and addresses shared energy challenges as well as encourages diverse, clean and efficient energy production.

There are many ways you can reduce your energy consumption and thus, your carbon footprint, helping to reduce carbon emissions, protect the environment and leave behind a cleaner world for the next generation.

Here’s a very short list of what you can do to conserve energy. A comprehensive list can be found on energy.gov.

  • Use ENERGY STAR products.
  • Turn off electronics (lights, fan, TV) when you leave a room.
  • Use natural lighting when feasible.
  • Unplug equipment that drains energy when not in use (i.e., cell phone chargers, coffeemakers, printers, etc.)
