AUGUST: Water Conservation

Did you know that approximately 3 percent of the U.S.’s energy is used to pump and treat water for everyday usage? This month try to monitor and reduce your water consumption in small but meaningful ways. Reducing your time in the shower, only running your dishwasher and washing machine when you have a full load to wash, and purchasing a water-efficient showerhead, are just a few easy ways to implement water conservation practices into your everyday life.

Green Team

Solar Power Events and our partners at the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA), created a Green Team to promote sustainability initiatives at North America Smart Energy Week. The team works hard to ensure that the conference demonstrates a real commitment to leadership in sustainability at large-scale conferences and convention centers. The team is focused on initiatives relating to energy consumption, sustainable food choices, and reducing waste.
