Using Less Energy Is Paying Off Energy effiicency measures become third-largest energy resource


F


ree home energy audits, energy efficiency tips, and loans to help members purchase the most efficient appliances possible. These measures do more than help electric co-op members save money on their monthly electricity bills.


Across the nation, energy efficiency programs and improved appliance efficiency standards are starting to pay off in very big ways. In fact, the American Council for on Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) considers the energy saved by such measures to be the nation's third largest electric power resource, and it could grow to be the most efficient by 2030, the ACEEE says.


According to ACEEE, the nation's energy efficiency efforts since 1990 have resulted in a major accomplishment for the US electric power industry. Not only is efficiency the nation's third largest energy resource, but it has averted the need to build the equivalent of 313 power plants since 1990. Efficiency is a greater contributor to the U.S. energy mix than nuclear power, says the ACEEE.


"We also estimate that efficiency reduced annual carbon dioxide emissions, a major contributor to climate change, by 490 million tons in 2015," the group said in a blog post. "We can see further evidence of


Why you should care about energy efficiency:


1. Using less electricity helps shrink your monthly bill.


2. Saving energy helps prevent the need to build more power plants, which everyone pays for in higher rates.


3. It's good for the environment.


efficiency’s impact in the fact that electricity consumption has flattened in recent years even as the economy has grown. What’s more, energy efficiency has saved consumers $90 billion annually on electric bills."


For individual households in the United States, that works out to an average savings of $840 per year, says the ACEEE.


Furthermore, a well-designed set of efficiency policies could help the United States avoid the need to build 800 power plants by 2030, meaning 1 billion tons fewer annual carbon dioxide emissions by 2030.
