The first National Energy Efficiency Day was Oct. 5th. National and regional organizations all over the country such as the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy and companies worked together to raise awareness and promote energy efficiency on social media.

Energy efficiency means smarter energy use. It means using better technology to reduce energy consumption at home or work and reduce energy lost during transmission of power from power plants. Energy efficiency remains the most efficient power resource, even exceeding renewable energy sources like wind and solar.

Many people don’t realize that energy efficiency also significantly benefits public health by cleaning the air! Energy efficiency delivers a powerful dose of pollution prevention. Together, we will reduce rates of cancer, asthma, heart disease, and strokes by avoiding the need for unnecessary power plants in local communities.

Here are some of my favorite tweets from National Energy Efficiency Day:
