Energy Efficiency

SECO's guidelines for residential consumers addresses ways to save energy in the following areas:

1. Check Insulation/Air Leaks
2. Reduce Heating/Cooling
3. Save on Water Heating
4. Check Windows
5. Manage Lighting
6. Save on Appliances
7. Manage Home Office and Home Electronics

The page also covers tools and rebates, and has a list of links where you can get more information.

The State Energy Conservation Office (SECO) wants to maximize energy efficiency while protecting the environment. This is a good site to learn more about SECO's programs and find ways to act on your own.
