Home Energy-Saving Tips

•Install a programmable thermostat to lower utility bills and manage your heating and cooling systems efficiently.

•Turn things off when you are not in the room such as lights, TVs, entertainment systems, and your computer and monitor.

•Plug home electronics, such as TVs and DVD players, into power strips; turn the power strips off when the equipment is not in use -- TVs and DVDs in standby mode still use several watts of power.

•Look for the ENERGY STAR® label on light bulbs, home appliances, electronics, and other products.

DID YOU KNOW?

Renewable energy sources including biomass, hydropower, geothermal, wind, and solar provide 9% of the energy used in the United States. Most renewable energy goes to producing electricity.

About 91% of the energy consumed in the United States comes from non-renewable energy sources, which include uranium ore and the fossil fuels — coal, natural gas, and petroleum.

The energy sources we use to make electricity can be renewable or non-renewable, but electricity itself is neither renewable nor non-renewable.

Like electricity, hydrogen is a secondary source of energy. It stores and carries energy produced from other resources (fossil fuels, water, and biomass).

MVSD Conservation Mission

Our conservation program is based on taking comprehensive action to save energy. Our efforts are coupled with Cenergistic's successful track record of assisting educational organizations across the nation to save substantial educational dollars by thoroughly implementing hundreds of energy-saving strategies. In order to achieve the greatest savings possible, every room in every building, and every staff person has to be part of the energy conservation program. Combined energy-saving efforts by everyone will ensure that:

  • Students and staff members benefit from better educational opportunities
  • Teachers and administrators have a bigger percentage of the budget to work with
  • Taxpayers' dollars are spent more effectively, and
  • The environment is helped by lower consumption of natural resources and decreased pollution
