Windmills 2

Households account for around 20% of total energy consumption in the U.S.  With ENERGY STAR, you can save up to 30% or about $600 per year.  (Source: USEPA)

Our energy choices directly affect the health of the air and climate.  The byproduct of energy derived from burning fossil-fuel is carbon dioxide (CO2), a powerful greenhouse gas.  As individuals and as a society, we must choose to reduce carbon emissions.

The most important steps are to use energy more efficiently, replace fossil fuels with clean energy sources such as sun and wind, and protect forests.  By taking these steps we will not only stem global warming – We will also provide secure energy supplies and generate new jobs and prosperity in clean technologies.  These are actions we can take in our homes, churches, and workplaces.
