Over the past several years I have been overwhelmed with learning about the various topics concerning Energy Conservation. Energy conservation is the practice of decreasing the quantity of energy used. It may be achieved through efficient energy use, in which case energy use is decreased while achieving a similar outcome, or by reduced consumption of energy services. Living in subarctic Fairbanks, Alaska, I had my 40-year-old home Energy-Star rated and, with the addition of a new oil furnace, upped my energy rating from a 3+ to a 4. Today it is 10°F; my home is warm and cozy. I am saving 50 gallons/month on fuel. Across our nation there are many different ways and thoughts we see on a daily basis concerning how we should all try to build more energy-efficient homes, buy cars with better fuel efficiency and economize using less electricity.
We should all try our best to be more efficient in our use of energy. Let us all try to do our best in following practical energy conservation skills. I have listed websites where you can find information of a wide variety of energy conservation topics from A to Z. Best wishes to you in all your endeavors to make energy conservation one of your top focus points for this century.
