Energy conservation

Energy conservation refers to efforts made to reduce energy consumption. Energy conservation is achieved through:

  • Increased efficient energy use
  • Decreased energy consumption
  • Reduced consumption from conventional energy sources

Energy conservation is a win - win practice. Not only does using less energy save money, but it helps towards improving our local air quality. Using less energy means less fossil fuels that power plants need to produce energy. The burning of these fossil fuels contribute towards air and water pollution.
