  • Reflection Question
    Electricity Generation Choose Renewable Energy or Purchase Renewable Energy Credits
    Your utility company is able to tell you your average energy usage. Ask them how your energy usage compares to others in your ZIP code, region, and/or state. What other steps can you take each day to reduce your electricity usage?

    I switched over to the green energy program from Nipsco! I'll be telling everyone I see in person about it probably forevermore. =)

    Electricity Generation Spread the Word about Energy Alternatives
    What inspiration and wisdom can you gather from your family, faith, or community traditions that would help you in both communicating about and addressing our most pressing energy issues?

    The biggest wisdom I've gathered from my family is turning off lights when we leave a room and never leaving electronic devices running unnecessarily. We support being as green and close to the earth as possible so switching over to the green energy from Nipsco was something I was thrilled to learn about and to share with others.

    Figuring out how to update the contact information. I like the way the activities are sectioned out. I've got one of the three girls signed in. Still working on the other two.
