Energy, Energy Efficiency, Energy Conservation, and Carbon Emission Reductions

THE LEAST EXPENSIVE Watt to produce is the ONE I DON’T NEED nor USE (NegaWatt) is one of my mottoes. By extension, the LEAST EXPENSIVE GALLON of gasoline or diesel to produce is the one I don’t need and don’t use.

Recommendation is to consider energy efficiency of any building, including our homes, before considering on-site power generation. We can also consider more fuel efficient vehicle as we make changes.

The General Purpose of these pages is to share information and experience with energy. Practical and sensible approaches are the focus.

Energy Related Programs & Initiatives in Nevada and California will be added.

Links to helpful information and resources will be added.

Green Power Network
The U.S. Department of Energy's Green Power Network provides news and information on green power markets and activities, including opportunities to buy green power. This site provides state-by-state information on green power marketing and utility green power programs. In addition, the site lists marketers of renewable energy credits (RECs), also known as green tags or renewable energy certificates, which represent the environmental attributes of the power produced from renewable energy projects.

Weatherization Assistance Program
The U.S. Department of Energy's Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) enables low-income families to reduce their energy bills by making their homes more energy-efficient. Through this program, weatherization service providers install energy-efficiency measures in the homes of qualifying homeowners free of charge. The WAP program web site offers a state-by-state map of opportunities, projects and activities.

How to start? Whole House Energy Audit and Home Performance Assessment is a suggested 1st step for coming up with a sensible, cost effective plan for improving energy efficiency and considering on-site renewable energy generation.
