Energy Efficiency Day shines light on the many advantages of adopting efficient measures and behaviors that enable us to save money, reduce pollution, and create jobs. By participating in #EEDay2023 on October 4th, you can join us in highlighting how individuals can take small steps that add up to lasting comfort, better health, and lower energy costs.
Energy efficiency doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice, but it does enable us to use less energy to get the same job done. When we prevent energy waste, we also avoid the need to generate more power produced from fossil fuels to meet our needs, as well as the climate-warming pollution that accompanies it. Using less energy leads to cleaner air and enables us to stretch the electricity produced from emissions-free sources, such as wind and solar, further to keep our homes comfortable and businesses operating.
How can you support efficiency?
You can urge your workplace to sign on as well. Many organizations that support EEDay use the opportunity to publicize their good work, products or services, while sharing information on how to become more involved. See current participants.
You can ask your elected officials to issue a proclamation that officially recognizes the first Wednesday in October as Energy Efficiency Day. These proclamations, which elected officials and other leaders promote, bring even more attention to the benefits of efficiency and spur more people to make easy energy-saving changes in their lives.
