What does Energy Efficiency mean for me and my community?

Energy efficiency not only helps you save money on your energy bill, but also helps reduce the amount of electricity produced. This means fewer fossil fuel power plants, reduced pollution, and lower rates for everyone. And, it creates local jobs adding to the 2.2 million employed in energy efficiency across the U.S.

Investing in energy efficiency creates local jobs that can't be exported. According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy,
2.2 million energy efficiency jobs employ workers nationwide as of 2016
