As conversations on climate and energy continue to make national headlines, thousands of businesses, utilities, universities, and local government (cities, counties, and states) are showing support for Energy Efficiency Day on October 2, 2019. Thousands of people are taking part in the Energy Efficiency Day today by encouraging everyone to reduce their energy use, save money, and breathe easier.

So what does energy efficiency do anyway? It has created 2.3 million jobs, avoided billions of pounds of harmful pollution, and saved tons and tons of energy. It’s also a critical pathway in meeting ambitious 100 percent renewable energy and zero-carbon goals, which exist in communities where 1 in 4 Americans live.

While Energy Efficiency Day is just one day, together, we can show our support for energy efficiency all year-round.
