Energy Efficiency means more than just paying less! It means lowering your Carbon Footprint!
A carbon footprint is a measurement of greenhouse gas emissions caused by an individual, group, or event expressed as a carbon dioxide equivalent in metric tons (mT).
On average, a business is responsible for 3 mT of carbon emissions per employee per year. (TerraPass)

How Does Arizona Make Electricity
Arizona being home to a power plant with the second highest capacity in the nation means significant nuclear power– one quarter of the state’s power is from this power plant. Over one third of the electricity is generated from coal. Coal deposits are large for our state but on the decline. On the other hand, renewable energy should continue to be on the rise with Arizona’s abundant solar resources and the goals in place to reach 100% carbon free energy by 2050.
