the amount of energy your home will consume. Generating electricity is
a major source environmental pollution. While it is possible to
generate electricity in many "green" ways, the number one source of US
electricity is coal. In 2006, we generated 4.1 trillion kilowatt hours
of electricity and 49% of the electricity generated came from dirty
coal. The pollutants released from power generating plants are known
to contribute to acid rain, smog and global warming. Thus, the less
energy we use in our homes, the less pollution we create.
