Every kilowatt-hour of electricity generated produces about 0.8 kilograms (1.7 pounds) of CO2.
A pilot project in Brighton, England, showed that people watch their energy habits more closely when they can see how much they use.
Switching from a 60-watt incandescent bulb to a 13-watt compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) can save 360 kilograms (800 pounds) of CO2 emissions over the life of the CFL.
In standby mode, a digital cable TV box uses 26 watts and a home desktop computer 4 watts.
Energy Star labels say how much energy an item uses—and saves.
Wind, solar, and hydroelectric power provide energy without emitting CO2
Some local governments provide economic incentives to switch to clean energy.
Every kilowatt-hour of electricity generated by sunlight reduces what's drawn from the power company. Financial incentives may be available.
Keeping an eye on the thermostat

It takes energy to heat water.
A flow rate of 5.7 to 9.5 liters (1.5 to 2.5 gallons) a minute can save up to 60 percent on hot water use.
