Energy Efficiency = Pollution Prevention
Implementing energy efficient technologies in your facility helps prevent utility generated pollution. You can calculate the environmental benefits of an energy efficiency measure using the link below. Once you enter your zip code, the EPA calculator will tell you the fuel mix of your local electric company and how much pollution is generated from 1 megawatt hour (MWh) of electricity use. Emissions vary by what fuels are used to generate electricity. See how you compare:
Here are some links to other useful pollution calculators:
- The Abraxas Energy Consulting Emissions Calculator allows you to compare emissions from electricity energy usage for two different scenarios, for example 2004 vs. 2003 or Baseline vs. Actual, etc.
