Energy Efficiency. Duh.

12 August 2008

Put aside for a moment all the talk about alternative fuels. They are no doubt important and the wave of the future. But the fastest, cheapest, easiest and cleanest step toward a sane energy environment — a step available to all of us immediately — is the powerful combination of efficiency and conservation.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, but it feels good to see this message repeated over and over again in the media – the fastest, easiest, cheapest and most accessible way for everyone to improve their impact on the environment is through energy efficiency and conservation. In this case, New York Times op-ed columnist Bob Herbert waxes poetic on the power and promise of energy conservation and efficiency, measures that have already made leaps and bounds in the United States and that are supported by the government, military, corporations, non-profits and residents alike. That’s why we created the Minnesota Energy Challenge, so that everyone has access to the right information about how to save energy and money in their homes.

Energy efficiency and conservation. We know what we should be doing.

It’s easy for you to make a real difference today through energy efficiency and conservation. Just visit the Minnesota Energy Challenge, pledge to take ONE action and then DO IT!
