Recently, Environment New Jersey released a new guide to help New Jersey residents improve energy efficiency in their homes and businesses. The proposed renewable energy and energy-saving measures in the guide are intended to lower energy bills and help reduce pollution from power plants throughout New Jersey.
In the United States, buildings account for over 40 percent of our total energy consumption, which translates into nearly ten percent of all energy consumption worldwide. Energy waste in buildings are caused by:
• Inadequate insulation
• Inefficient heating and cooling systems
• Poor/insufficient construction techniques
However, recent innovations in green technologies have shown to reduce energy consumption and can lower energy costs by as much as two-thirds.
A public education campaign is being launched this summer to provide New Jersey residents with solutions on how to shift to clean energy.
For businesses and consumers who want to switch to more environmentally friendly energy solutions there are several programs that offer additional benefits including:
• Tax credits
• Free energy use assessments
