Install programmable thermostats to make sure that energy use reductions occur when buildings are not in use. Reducing energy used for building space conditioning can result in significant cost savings.
Study the potential of using tidal stream generator technology in rivers below our existing dams and powerplants. Tidal stream generators (or TSGs) make use of the kinetic energy of moving water to power turbines, in a similar way to wind turbines that use moving air. This technology could reuse the moving water that has already gone through our powerplant generators and, as a result, generate more electricity to help... more »
