Energy Efficiency

How we use energy matters.

 

Currently, close to 80% of the energy we consume is harming our environment. These sources create pollution, greenhouse gases, and depend on a vulnerable centralized grid system. Coal and Transportation Fuels are the biggest offenders.

If we have no choice but to use these energy sources until we can transition to cleaner and distributive sources of energy, we need to consume less.
