Our goal is to save 10 million kilowatt-hours of energy. But what does saving 10 million kilowatt-hours mean?

A kilowatt-hour, or kWh, is a measurement of energy that describes the electricity used (1,000 watts) over a length of time (one hour).

In other words, 10 million kilowatt-hours is a LOT of energy!

Saving that amount of energy is equivalent to:

117,000 trees absorbing CO2 for 10 years*

 

Taking over 1,500 CARS off the road for an entire year*

 

Conserving the electricity from over 1,300 HOMES for an entire year*
