Efficient energy use, sometimes simply called energy efficiency, is using less energy to provide the same level of energy service. For example, the new hybrid automobiles use the gasoline energy more efficiently or a better insulated home will more efficiently keep a house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Much of what Tioga does is to help you be more energy efficient and to create renewable energy, both pillars of the sustainable energy policy.

Installing a 500 kW solar power system prevents
the emission of approximately 1,200,000 pounds of carbon dioxide annually. According to the EPA, this amount is equivalent to the annual carbon dioxide emissions of 100 passenger cars or the carbon dioxide sequestered annually by 124 acres of pine forest.
