1/2 -- Project Descriptions


These are the projects that we chose to reduce our energy use.  These projects offered the most energy saving per dollar spent for our climate, house, skills, and habits.  For us, this set of projects will save 18+ tons per year of green house gas emissions, and $4,800 per year  in energy costs.


Depending on your climate, house, skills and habits, you will likely come up with a somewhat different list.  See the Planning section for ideas on how to make the list of projects that offers the best return for you.
