Promoting the culture of energy efficiency and sustainability in the Eastern Sierra.

preventing the wasteful use of a particular resource, usually through technology



prevention of excessive or wasteful use of a resource, usually through behavior


When it comes to saving energy, we think there’s a place for both.
