Energy Efficiency

There are a number of ways that we can continue to improve our energy efficiency. We know that fossil fuels are not going to last forever.

Certainly, the use of renewable energy sources will help curb our over-reliance on fossil fuels, but even before we do that we need to conserve fuels by reducing consumption. The more we conserve, the better it will be for the environment. Another side effect of conservation is that fossil fuel supplies will last longer, so their prices will remain lower.

Remember the three R's, especially: reduce, reuse, recycle (see below). Here with help of materials from the Department of Energy is a list of things you can do to save energy:

Find out how much energy you use:

Knowledge is power, and knowing how much energy you use is a big step in learning how to save it in the future. Find out what appliances and other devices have "phantom loads" and shut these off if they are not needed.

Cut back on heating needs:

Wear a sweatshirt or other warm clothing indoors when it is cold, so your parents will not have to turn the furnace up so high. On the other hand, wear fewer clothes indoors when it is hot, so your parents will not have to run the air conditioner as much.

Save electricity:

Turn off all lights, computers and radios when you do not need them.

Ask your parents to replace regular light bulbs with compact fluorescent lights. They cost a bit more but they use about a fourth of the energy of regular light bulbs and last up to ten times longer. If you only buy a few, use them where you use the most light.

Save gasoline:

Use public transit or ride your bike whenever you can.

Share rides with friends to after-school activities and Saturday games.


Buy products without much packaging and wrapping.


Share your clothes and toys with others after you outgrow them.


Recycle newspapers. Paper made with recycled paper uses about one-third less energy than paper made from raw mate...

The Top Ten Cost-effective Renewable Energy Systems You Can Buy

  1. A solar thermal system benefits you by heating your water and pays for itself in two to three years depending on your location.
  2. A solar pool heating system for your pool or hot tub also pays for itself in two to three years.
  3. Solar photovoltaics to power your home or business, using government incentives , will reduce your monthly electricity costs significantly, in some areas. In some countries, such as Japan, solar is a viable alternative to fossil fuels. In North America, fossil fuels will continue to rise in cost and solar will continue to decline.
  4. A portable solar system for an RV will cost less than a thousand dollars and provide you with power for many years.
  1. Solar for remote electricity (electric fence, lights, monitoring station, etc.) are much cheaper than hooking up to the grid.
  2. A remote solar photovoltaic system for your cottage or remote location can cost much less than connection to the grid.
  3. A geothermal system will pay for itself in five years or less and provide you with heat energy for the lifetime of your home or business.
  4. An uniterruptable power supply system to cover your essential electricity needs, when a power outage strikes.
  5. A wind energy system to power your farm, home or cottage could make your farm energy self-sufficient, in some geographical areas.
  6. A micro hydro power station can provide you with limitless energy, if you have running water on your property.
