Energy Efficiency benefits

COST SAVINGS

  • At home, you can save money on energy bills by making energy-efficient upgrades—such as adding insulation, using LED lighting, and installing a pv system that reduce your energy use and can improve comfort.
  • Energy-efficient buildings cost less to heat, cool, and operate, while industry and manufacturing plants can make products at lower cost. Energy-efficient transportation results in fuel savings.

ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS

  • Reducing energy use is essential in the fight against climate change, traditional power plants burn fossil fuels that release greenhouse gases and contribute to air pollution.
  • Energy-efficient homes and buildings are also better equipped to switch to renewable energy, which does not produce harmful emissions.

HEALTH BENEFITS

  • Reducing fossil fuel use results in cleaner air, water, and land, all of which directly affect human health.
