Be energy efficient



Look in the e-Edition of the St. Petersburg Times for pictures of home appliances that use energy. For each appliance, answer the following
questions. Is this a necessity or a luxury? What are the advantages and disadvantages to using it? What’s the alternative to this appliance? Do a little research to determine the energy efficiency of each. Rate the appliances from most efficient to least efficient. Using the e-Edition archives, find newspaper articles about energy issues such as energy shortages, non-renewable energy sources, energy costs, energy dependence and health problems associated with pollution or other effects of energy use. List ways you can save energy and create an energy contract to make a difference. Share your energy conservation ideas here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
