Keeping the Good Life Going. Keeping The Planet Alive.

Posted by Anne Wesley on

Affordable, reliable electricity is fundamental to modern life, or as someone may call it the "good life". It provides clean and safe light around the clock, it cools and heats our homes, as well as connects us all via smartphones and computers.

The "good life", often times, comes at a cost of the planet's sustainability.

Electricity demand is growing higher than any other form of energy and fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, and petroleum) are still the main source in electricity generation.

Fossil fuels are harmful to the environment mainly due to the amount of carbon dioxide or CO2 emitted when fossil fuels are burned. This burning and release of CO2 is a huge contributor to the greenhouse effect and climate change.

Save energy, save the environment.

Although it may not be obvious, there's a direct connection between your energy use and the environment. When you consume less power, you reduce the amount of toxic fumes released by power plants, conserve the earth's natural resources and protect ecosystems from destruction. [www.saveonenergy.com]

Turning off lights when you don't need is a simple thing we all can do at no cost to save money and energy, preventing the bulbs from burning out fast and the climate from heating up. [sustainability.tufts.edu]

Composting food scraps can reduce climate impact while also recycling soil nutrients.

Cutting down on using one-time-use plastic and recycling paper, plastic, glass & aluminum keep landfills from growing.

Every single effort counts for the sustainable future!
