Conserving energy is an important step to improve our impact on the environment. A greenhouse gas emission like carbon dioxide is a by-product of energy use and is linked to global warming and climate change. There is also an important connection between energy and water use. It takes water to produce energy and it takes energy to deliver water. Reducing energy use will help curb climate change AND conserve the water resources it would have taken to generate the energy saved. Explore the categories below to learn about ways to reduce energy use individually and in your homes, in neighborhoods, and regionally. You can also learn about agencies and organizations working on energy issues and about policies and regulations regarding energy.
