My #energypledge for 2013 is to buy more batteries 4 my new solar PV system (installed July4th Independence Day) and always turn off lights.
.@ENERGY My #EnergyPledge:Up the thermostat by 2 deg in Summer & use localized fans.Reduce by 2 Deg in Winter & use warm clothing to offset.
My #energypledge is to walk to work everyday, and to take the metro everywhere instead of the car! #energyallstars
Turn things off when you are not in the room such as lights, TVs, entertainment systems, and your computer and monitor #tipsEnergy
@ENERGY We switched to all LED lighting in our house.
Take your own pledge MT @ENERGY: We love @arneduncan's #energypledge to use less heat in the winter, less AC in summer: http://youtu.be/q8H_3vwX0D0
