We all use energy when we turn on a light, charge our phones, and if you’re using a computer right now, well, you’re using energy as we speak.
The main source of how we get our energy is from fossil energy. The burning of oil, coal, and natural gas creates fossil energy. This form of energy is non-renewable. But we also have other forms of energy that are renewable such as solar, wind, hydropower, and many new sources of energy that are being developed today.
We as individuals can help lessen the burden load by conserving and being more efficient with our energy usage. Here are a couple tricks I use for myself:
1. Walk, bike, skate in the neighborhood instead of driving.
2. Traveling? Try to carpool
3. Purchasing a sports car? I’d rather get a gas efficient hatchback car. There’s no point of going 0-60 in 3 seconds in the freeway and using half your tank. Go to the track if you want to go that fast!
4. Unplug chargers! I take my chargers with me so when I need to recharge, I just plug my devices till it’s time for me to leave.
Turning off and unplugging appliances is another routine we can all start to develop in conserving energy and causing less pollution on our planet. Rising Sun helps me as an individual to conserve energy and water, and I do my best to educate our Energy Specialists, clients, and even my personal acquaintances about their usage of resources. We can make a positive difference every single day by doing a small kindness and helping our planet prosper.
