Pyramid of Conservation

February 12th, 2009 by Peter Schmelzer

Minnesota Power has developed a helpful diagram to help homeowners understand home energy efficiency.

It’s called the Pyramid of Conservation, and it offers both the place to start and a suggested progression toward more complex, more costly solutions.

The base of the pyramid is understanding, suggesting you get a home energy audit done for your house. The peak is renewable power. In between are the more approachable options which address lighting, controllable thermostats, appliances and the like.

So take a look and see how your home matches up to the pyramid. It’s the right thing to do.
