Statement of Steve Nadel, ACEEE executive director

Washington, DC — Happy Earth Day! To celebrate, we hope you consider taking a step to save energy such as replacing an old incandescent light bulb with an energy-efficient LED or scheduling an energy audit. These simple steps add up. In fact, many people don’t realize that energy efficiency can single-handedly cut about half — half — of the carbon emissions needed to meet our climate goals. Plus, you’ll save money and, with reduced pollution, breathe easier.    

So today, we’re sharing not only an interview with Denis Hayes, the national organizer of the first Earth Day in 1970, but also a new four-part video series on how we can all Live Well with Energy Efficiency.
