Energy Audit

Reducing energy use in your home saves you money, increases our energy security, and reduces the pollution that is emitted from non-renewable sources of energy. If you are planning to install a small renewable energy system to make your own electricity, such as a Solar electric system or small Wind turbine, reducing your electricity loads is the first step - saving you money by allowing you to purchase a smaller system.

There are many ways you can reduce electricity use in your home:

Appliances and Electronics -- Purchase energy-efficient products and operate them efficiently.

Lighting -- Purchase energy-efficient products, such as compact fluorescent, LED, operate them efficiently and incorporate more daylighting into your home using energy-efficient windows and skylights.

Electric Space Heating and Cooling -- Purchase energy-efficient electric system and operate them efficiently. Incorporate Passive Solar design concepts into your home, which include using energy-efficient windows. Properly insulate and air seal your home. Select an energy-efficient heating system that doesn't use electricity. Incorporating a DC air-conditioner  will prove to be a wise investment as well.

Electric water heating -- Purchase an energy-efficient electric water heater and operate it efficiently. Or purchase an energy efficient water heater that doesn't use electricity, that is,  a Solar water heater.
