Did you know two thirds of the energy we produce is wasted?!
Luckily, experts believe we can reduce our energy use by 40% to 60% by the year 2050 if we take some simple measures at home and/or work.
Like tweaking how we use appliances, changing light bulbs, installing new windows, and revisiting our transportation habits.

Emma Fisher from Penn Environment will walk you through the Citizen's Guide to Reducing Energy Waste, and share great tips and tricks for living a more energy efficient life.
