October is Energy Awareness Month!
It’s here again-October is National Energy Awareness Month!
“Years from now, our children may wonder if we did all we could to leave a safe, clean, and stable world for them to inherit. If we keep our eyes on the long arc of our future and commit to doing what this moment demands, the answer will be yes…I call upon the citizens of the United States to recognize this month by working together to achieve greater energy security, a more robust economy, and a healthier environment for our children.” – President Barack Obama
This is a pretty large scale request from the President. So how can we, as individuals, help “achieve greater energy security, more robust economy and healthier environment for our children”? Become a member of the Minnesota Energy Challenge! From there you can calculate your CO2 footprint, learn how to participate in energy conservation actions, reduce your homes energy bill, and help others in your community reduce their energy use. All of these help save money, and reduce your CO2 footprint to help better the environment!
Happy Energy Awareness Month!
