The most affordable energy is always the energy that you don’t use. AEA encourages communities to consider ways to reduce their energy usage before implementing any other type of project. Don’t forget to look at efficiency for both heat and electricity: This often results in the greatest savings and can eliminate the need or reduce the scope for other energy projects. Efficiency projects are win-win propositions: They reduce energy consumption and improve a building’s comfort at the same time.
