Energy Efficiency Overview
How we use energy is just as important as how it's produced and where it comes from. The more efficient we are, the less we use and the less we spend on energy. The less energy we use, and the less harm we do to the environment. Energy efficiency is one of the most important issues we face in the 21st century, and the City is taking a comprehensive approach to energy management and planning. In this section you’ll find information regarding incentive programs, educational programs, and energy efficiency policies, all of which are designed to make energy efficiency easier and more affordable.
