Family Energy FACE-OFF
CERTs Family Energy FACE-OFF – Earth Day 2012-Earth Day 2013
From Earth Day 2012 to Earth Day 2013, two Minnesota families and hundreds of their teammates competed in the Family Energy Face-Off. The families took actions to conserve energy and resources in their homes and invited others in their communities and networks to do the same.
The Prairie Penny Pinchers did their best to win, but ultimately the Mill Pond Minimizers took the cake. A total of 9,343 conservation actions were taken in the categories of electricity, cooling, heating, overall building, transportation, waste, and water.
3.3 billion BTUs/year (estimated from only 1,100 of the 5,100 energy-saving actions taken)
