Guest Blog: Save the world by saving energy in your home

by Jaclyn Nicholson, eLocal.com

Energy efficiency should always be a top priority in your home. In the U.S. we tend to overuse and over produce, creating a massive amount of carbon dioxide. The United States is the second largest producer of CO2, just behind China. Although these numbers are astronomical, we can contribute to the solution daily by being more energy efficient in our homes. From upgrading appliances to solar roof panels, there are endless ways to conserve. For more simple methods, it is encouraged to change your light bulbs from incandescent to CFL. If every home in the nation followed this suggestion, we would have enough energy to light three million homes for a year! Check out the infographic below to learn more.
