Measure Consumption to Manage and Reduce
The US Department of Energy (DOE) says you can save 10-15% of wasted energy by doing little things such as turning off unused lights and unplugging charging devices when the units are fully charged. I am going to use my own house as an example. Our family of 4 is going to track our monthly utility usage, see where we are using or creating power, gas, water, sewer and trash. We will try to develop ways to reduce consumption and see how much we can reduce. We will post this information every month and see how we do.
