Everything is bigger in Texas. Including our energy use. TexasIsHot.org wants to help change this by providing Texans with the tips, tools and information to be more energy efficient — and save money in the process.
Our goal is to change the way Texans think about electricity and energy use.
Over the last several years, the cost of all forms of energy has increased, and through 2033, the U.S. Energy Information Administration projects few signs that they will be headed back down. Whatever the reason for high prices — including increased demand and limited supply in a rapidly growing world, concern about the environment, the cost of new technologies and investments in alternative energy sources — there is still one way to take control of your bills and put more money in your pocket – use less energy.
An energy efficiency study commissioned by the Texas Clean Energy Coalition in 2011 revealed that Texas businesses and households could save $14 billion by 2030 using simple efficiency measures. We designed this website to help Texans tap into those savings in their own homes.
A little energy can go a long way.
Energy conservation is without a doubt the easiest option to lower bills, help the environment and lessen our nation’s energy dependence. However, the American Council on an Energy Efficient Economy reports that Texas has dropped from 19th to 33rd in the nation for programs to promote energy efficiency in homes, appliances, transportation, and electric utilities since 2008. We can change this, but we must start now.
TexasIsHot.org is your energy efficiency headquarters. The website will provide the latest energy efficiency news, quick and easy ways to conserve and save money, and interactive tools to show you the impact of small changes in your daily life. The site will also provide a forum for Texans across the state to share energy saving stories and ideas.
We encourage you to visit our site often and join our e-mail list so we can keep you updated on energy efficiency initiatives, programs, and tips to put you in control.
