Energy Conservation


Energy conservation is the effort we make to reduce the consumption of energy by using less of an energy resource or service and transitioning to clean renewable energy. Each year we are looking for more ways to conserve our energy resources, like natural gas and oil, because these are non-renewable fuels. That means there is a limited supply. By using renewable fuels like water for hydropower and sunlight for solar power, or alternative fuel sources like ethanol, hydrogen, vegetable oil and biomass, we can help conserve our natural resources, so they don't run out.

By changing our behaviors and doing things like not using as much water to shower, sharing rides to school or work, even purchasing an electric or hybrid vehicle, you can help conserve these precious resources and help keep the environment cleaner.

Conserve energy in your home by turning off lights when you leave or use a programmable or smart thermostat are simple ways to save energy.
