Find your Power Zones with Circuit Detective
Last night I gave a talk at Georgia Tech focused on energy conservation for the group Wasted Watts. After my spiel, one of the questions was, "When do you see America embracing sustainable principles?".
The American Solar Energy Society had a great article in their March 2009 issue regarding how homeowners make their energy conservation and efficiency decisions. Do residents really pick the low-hanging fruit that delivers the most bang for the buck?
While it might sound "corporate"; in regards to this blog, "Resource Management" simply refers to the management of two things: Energy and Water. You might be able to deduce from our name that we were originally only focused on Energy (Watt). But as we got to thinkin', we realized we would be doing a disservice if we focused solely on Energy and not on Water (it is the most basic element of life after all!). Therefore, we kept the name Mapawatt because it just rolled off our tongue, but we will focus on both.
Welcome to the MapAWatt blog! While MapAWatt.com is under development, mapawatt.com will be your guide to getting started on learning about energy/water conservation and then acting on what you have learned.
