Save Money and Reduce Your Impact Through Energy Efficiency
Do you want to save money and fight climate change, without sacrificing comfort or convenience? Becoming more energy efficient accomplishes all that and more. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has several programs and tools to help deliver the benefits of reducing your energy consumption.
EPA’s Energy Star program is the world’s most widely recognized symbol for energy efficiency, helping families and businesses save $300 billion on utility bills while reducing carbon pollution by 2 billion metric tons.
You can reduce your impact even further by choosing a clean energy resource to power your home. Many areas offer electricity options that include generating sources that emit no or negligible air emissions, such as from wind or solar power. Access EPA’s Green Power Locator to find out more.
Increasing your energy efficiency not only helps your own bottom line, but the planet’s as well. That’s because using less and cleaner energy means reducing the greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. Learn more about how EPA is fighting climate change with the Clean Power Plan.
