What are the Essentials of Energy Efficient Products?
It is the foresight of investing in energy efficiency that will enable individuals and communities to significantly reduce unnecessary fossil fuel waste. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that Americans are paying more for electricity each year with a projected 25-50% rise over the next twenty years. In fact, if families and employers were to switch to LED lighting tomorrow, a savings of $3.9 billion dollars per year in energy costs could result. In addition, over 20 million metric tons of air pollution just might be avoided. There is also the matter of personal savings. Although some energy efficient products may seem expensive up front, it is the extended use that pays the consumer and the environment back, tenfold. Solar electronics reduce battery use that can wreak toxic havoc in our landfills and energy efficient light bulbs could have a 20-50,000 hour life span saving hundreds per year.
What is the Future of Energy Efficient Products?
The future holds some interesting developments for energy efficient products. For instance, after 2014 all 40 watt incandescent bulbs will be banned. The EPA reports of a ‘National Action Plan’ where 50 leaders in the utility, consumer advocate, environmentalist, state and a regulating fields have banned together to spearhead the future of energy efficient choices. They will oversee proper standards as well as encourage new technology such as solar.
As more consumers embrace energy efficient choices, everything from light bulbs, cell phone chargers, fans, swimming pool covers, flashlights and much more will begin switching to sustainable technology. It is a future filled with the hope of releasing the tether of environmentally unsound choices. It is a future of clean, long lasting, energy efficient products that will surpass the un-progressive, antiquated system currently in use.
