Energy conservation is the practice of decreasing the quantity of energy used by efficient energy use or by reduced energy consumption.
The benefits of energy conservation are countless and include consumer/corporate savings, environmental/climate protection, national security and personal security and comfort.
Energy conservation and associated lowered energy demand is a driving force in research and development of renewable energy sources that in turn gives consumers greater flexibility in choosing a preferred method of energy production and forestalls the need for new power plants and energy imports.
In Carol Stream, the Village is committed to reducing the community's carbon footprint and one of the more effective ways to achieve this aim is to encourage its residents and business owners to assume their role as energy steward where they live and work. Residents and businesses looking for proven ways to reduce their energy use should reference the Alliance to Save Energy web site for a primer on energy reduction strategies.
