Setting Goals: Energy Conservation

A compact fluorescent light bulb uses 75 percent less energy than a regular bulb – and it can last up to four years.

Across America, home refrigerators use the electricity of 25 large power plants every year.

A hot water faucet that leaks one drop per second can add up to 165 gallons a month. That's more than one person uses in two weeks.

A crack as small as 1/16th of an inch around a window frame can let in as much cold air as leaving the window open three inches!

Every year, more than $13 billion worth of energy leaks from houses through small holes and cracks. That's more than $150 per family!
