Energy efficiency means using less energy to accomplish the same task. The idea is to eventually reduce our energy consumption and demands without
diminishing our quality of life. Becoming more energy efficient will save you money, reduce pollution and ease energy demands within the economy.
This website was designed to give information, ideas and examples of energy efficiency and will also show how energy conservation benefits everyone.
The energy efficiency cycle, shown below, depicts how energy conservation/energy efficiency works. When we conserve energy or become more energy efficient,
we are also saving money and reducing pollution.
In this portion of our website, you will find information about ways to improve energy efficiency in your home, the workplace and while driving, along
with information about energy efficient products. Use the ENERGY STAR online tools for tips on saving energy and money. And, take advantage of the links
we list as resources to help you reduce your energy use and find out more about energy efficiency.
