This feature explains simple steps that consumers can take to make more informed energy decisions, save money on their monthly bills, become more energy efficient, and protect the environment. It also includes information on Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFLs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and more. In addition, the feature also describes DOE's research and initiatives for energy and energy efficiency technologies, and illustrates the Obama administration's commitment to investing in the United States' green economy.
