Happy 4th of July!

fireworks_smallAs you celebrate American liberty, pride and patriotism on this beautiful Independence Day 2009, please take a moment to reflect on your personal energy dependence. Collectively, our Nation wastes enormous amounts of energy (see 2007 McKinsey study) and we buy much of it from foreign countries. Behaviors that contribute to building energy conservation (ex: turning off your AC while outdoors at your picnics and BBQs today) and energy efficiency (ex: using technology such as compact fluorescent or LED lights) can save enormous amounts of energy. Lastly, consider this interesting tidbit; a study by the U.S. Department of Energy showed that excess electricity produced by the power grid overnight would be enough to fuel 84 percent of our passenger cars and trucks if they were all converted to electric power.
