Office of Consumer Affairs, Washington, DC.; Department of Energy, Washington, DC.
This guide was prepared to help individuals become more informed and more efficient consumers of energy. The guide lists agencies and organizations which provide useful information on everything from household energy-saving tips to energy conservation projects sponsored by local community groups. Section 1 highlights many of the agencies and private organizations providing information on energy-related topics. It also includes energy-saving tips to help individuals save energy and money. Section 2 lists state and local consumer protection offices. The functions of these offices vary greatly from state to state, as do the services and information they provide. While the guide does not attempt to spell out what each office does, it should be a helpful reference on where to turn with problems or questions. The section also lists state energy offices. These offices generally carry out the federal government's energy conservation and assistance programs. In addition, they provide consumers with helpful energy conservation information, publications, and other services. Section 3 lists Federal Information Centers. The Centers, providing information about energy and other federal programs, can be reached by the telephone numbers indicated (many of which are toll free). The last section provides lists of energy books, pamphlets/booklets, kits, and audio-visuals. (Author/JN)
