NegaWatts save you money.
For example, If the World banned all incandescent light bulbs (which are very inefficient) and only sold LED light bulbs, which is high efficient lighting, it would create a significant increase in our power supply because the demand would significantly drop. The world would create Negawatts of electricity without creating a new power plant!
Taking this theory into practice in your own home or business, its always more affordable to “reduce then produce”. Solar Panels typically have a high upfront cost, but you could buy less solar panels to cover your electrical generation needs If you focused on Negawatts, energy efficiency first. There are tons of projects you can do everything from fixing the air leaks, better insulation, LED lighting, programming your thermostat, and even conducting a do-it-yourself energy audit. Producing Negawatts could be as simple as making a life style change such as developing a habit to turn the lights off when you leave the room. Please share some methods of how you produce Negawatts…
