We all use energy every day to power our homes, for transportation, or other uses. How do you use energy in your daily life?
Keep track of and evaluate your energy use for three days this week.
Then, post to the DB a summary of how you used energy over these three days.
What were the end uses of the energy (transportation or commercial or residential)?
What kinds of fuel did you use and for what purpose? (Heating or cooling, recreational and so on)
Report from which primary energy source your electric company generates electricity (coal, nuclear and so on).
Did you use any alternative sources of energy? (Passive solar, perhaps?) Describe.
Based on the outcomes of your assessment, are you using energy proficiently?
What changes might you make? describe why?
