Energy Education Incentives: Evaluating the Impact of Consumer Energy Kits
Kirby, Sarah D.; Guin, Autumn; Langham, Laura
Journal of Extension, v53 n1 Article 1RIB5 Feb 2015
Measuring the energy and environmental impact of residential energy education efforts is difficult. The E-Conservation residential energy management program uses consumer energy kits to document the impact of energy-efficient improvements. The consumer energy kit provides an incentive for individuals attending energy education workshop, helps consumers identify simple energy-saving technologies, and provides consumers with accessible energy-saving actions. As a result of consumers installing the compact fluorescent light bulbs and low flow showerheads in the energy kits, measureable savings in terms of annual energy savings, kilowatt hours, gallons of water used, and CO[superscript 2] reduction are achieved.
