Energy efficiency is something that is gaining a lot of attention. The concern over how we have lived and how wasteful we have been with energy is now coming to the forefront because it is a major issue we can no longer ignore. Energy supplies are dwindling and pollution is at an all time high. Not to mention the cost of energy is going nowhere but up. All of these factors make energy efficiency something that we have to focus on today.
