Most of our energy use comes from fossil fuels like petroleum and coal that provide electricity and gas to power our growing energy needs. These resources are non-renewable which means that we will eventually run out.
Conserving energy not only helps to conserve resources but also translates into financial savings. When we drive our cars, wash our hands and turn lights on, we usually don’t stop to assess the amount of resources we are using. We also don’t stop to think that we are depleting resources that are not boundless.
We can all conserve energy, save money, reduce environmental pollution and improve the quality of our campus. You can help by putting into practice the following energy conservation initiatives.
