Green Plug District - Energy Conservation

Energy conversation should be a topic we all should be focused on not only to help live a greener life style but to help reduce our own energy use and promote cost savings.

I am interested in examples of how members have taken steps, that have been successful for them in regard to energy conservation and through what outlet or means did they find a good resource.

There is a great social media platform at http://greenplug.nu that is allowing members to pre-register before it goes live focusing on residential energy conservation. Feel free to visit and get registered now.

I attended the MEEA Show in Chicago last month and it mainly focused on energy conversation related to commercial energy use and not residential.

Just like big corporations, I would like to reduce energy use and take advantage of the savings.... I would say as a residential consumer I am always interested in new ways to find resources that can be applied to my own energy use at home.

Excited to be part of the Home Energy Pros community and look forward to the members comments.
