When people talk about “clean energy,” they often mean wind or solar power, and when they’re discussing “energy efficiency" or "energy conservation,” they’re usually talking about doing things like remembering to turn off the lights.
But energy efficiency IS clean energy, just like solar and wind. It’s also cheaper than fossil fuels and doesn’t create pollution. It’s an energy resource that your local utility can help you create by taking simple steps that add up to defeating the behemoth of Dirty Power that’s overheating our planet and fouling our air and water. It can also save us money on our utility bills!
