Challenge Stats!

22 September 2008

As of this morning, over 17,200 Minnesotan residents are pledging to reduce their energy use with the Minnesota Energy Challenge!  Our numbers keep going up, which means our pledged savings keep going up as well.  Currently, if everyone takes the actions that they have pledged to do, from switching lightbulbs to compact fluorescents and driving the speed limit to replacing their furnace with a high-efficiency model, we will avoid over 133.8 million pounds of carbon dioxide and save over $13.3 million dollars EVERY YEAR!

That’s the equivalent of saving 317 railcars’ worth of coal from going up in smoke…and has a real impact on our environment and our pocketbooks.

Thank you for your great actions – keep up the good work, and please let me know if you have any questions!
