Energy Efficiency Day (the first Wednesday in October – Oct. 6, 2021) is a collaborative effort of dozens of energy efficiency advocacy groups around the United States, including the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), Advanced Energy Economy, Alliance to Save Energy, Natural Resources Defense Council, the Regional Energy Efficiency Organizations and many others (see full list below).
The Energy Efficiency Day message is simple: “Save Money. Cut Pollution. Create Jobs.” Since the inaugural Energy Efficiency Day in 2016, this annual awareness event has been supported by hundreds of prominent organizations, companies, government agencies and others. Our goal is to share tips, tools and stories that promote the multiple benefits of energy efficiency, from lower costs to healthier homes. Energy efficiency is the cheapest, quickest way to meet our energy needs, cut consumer bills and reduce pollution. Energy efficiency is also an economic engine, supporting more than 2.4 million jobs nationwide in manufacturing, construction and other fields – most of which can’t be outsourced overseas.
We hope you’ll share your own energy efficiency success stories on October 6. Please remember to use the hashtag #EEDay2021 on all your online posts!
