Our Energy Use

Using energy efficiently and conserving energy rank as some of the most critical actions we all can take to reduce our environmental footprint and save money. If we control and reduce our energy use—individually and collectively—we will help to reduce costs for all of us in the long run. And, importantly, we can help to ensure that everyone can afford the energy that powers our communities. Working together, we can be responsible about our energy use, our community and our environment.
