Making choices about energy efficiency is very important. Not only will smart choices save you money in the long-term, but they will lessen your impact on the environment around you. And since the energy supply of this city isn't limitless, so you're also doing the city a favour! Once again, it's all down to your daily habits. Simply think twice when you walk out of a room leaving the light on, or jump in the car to go to the corner store. It's not that hard!
Equiterre, Quebec's environmentally and socially responsible organization, makes a good case for being energy efficient:
"Energy efficiency helps the environment because it avoids wasting resources and overproducing energy. Also, in terms of the economy, it frees up capital for individuals as well as for the whole of society. According to the David Suzuki Foundation, Canadians could save 30 billion dollars per year if they achieved the potential for energy conservation that is currently available" (Equiterre)
Equiterre offers a home-visiting service for low-income households to to an energy-wise check. It's really helpful for those on a low budget, not just because it's free, but because they help your hydro bills become much lower!
