No matter how large the problem may appear, the fact remains that each of us is a part of the solution. Every day, each of us makes decisions that can stimulate sustainability and a new energy economy. When we put all the pieces together, all of us â€” the Federal Government, private industry, and the public â€” have the means to shape our energy future and move our nation toward energy independence.
Each October for Energy Awareness Month, Federal Energy Management Program provides materials and ideas to help promote energy-saving practices at Federal facilities. Resources include posters and other energy awareness materials carrying FEMP’s Energy Awareness Month outreach message.
The 2009 Energy Awareness Month promotional materials remind Federal employees to switch off unnecessary lights and equipment, use efficient ENERGY STARÂ® products and compact fluorescent light bulbs, and drive fuel-efficient and alternative fuel vehicles. Available outreach materials include a poster, bookmark, room temperature card, and notepad. Federal agencies participating in the You Have the Power awareness campaign receive a supply of these materials.
Take the month of October to consider how you use energy, and how you can conserve year round. Here are some tips for you to implement.
