Energy Conservation

 

In Miami Beach, the largest source of emissions comes from electricity; which produces between 60%-70% of all emissions community wide each year! Energy conservation is the practice of reducing your energy use in order to decrease your carbon footprint and lower your bills. Using less electricity produced from fossil fuels means that less carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases will be released into the atmosphere. That’s why it’s so important that we focus on how much energy we use each day.

October 7, 2020 is Energy Efficiency Day but we're celebrating all month long.  Energy efficiency day promotes the multiple benefits of reducing your energy consumption. Everyone can conserve energy and build more energy efficient habits very easily. You can make a difference by taking the pledge to reduce your energy consumption by committing to some simple switches around your home.
