Efficiency and Conservation

Efficiency and Conservation

The cheapest, cleanest energy is that which you don’t use. Which is why energy efficiency is the fastest-growing, most abundant, and lowest-cost energy resource available in the United States today. Efficiency saves consumers money by lowering energy bills, reduces greenhouse emissions that contribute to global warming, and spurs local economic development with green, in-state jobs.

Communities can initiate a wide range of activities to help local residents, businesses, institutions, and local governments and schools reduce energy usage through efficiency and conservation.  These initiatives include:

    • Organizing community compact fluorescent lightbulb campaigns
    • Improving efficiency in residential buildings by promoting home energy audits
    • Adopting town master plans and zoning bylaws that promote efficiency
