Des Moines is an energy-efficient town
April 15, 2010
The EPA has named named Des Moines #24
on its list of the 25 cities with the most Energy Star-labeled buildings
. Considering that the metro area is only #91 in the country for total population
, the ranking suggests the area is disproportionately committed to energy-efficient buildings. We have had considerable success in our own experience with energy savings using LED light bulbs
. We've seen that switching over a handful of primary household lights can decrease total household electric use by about 20%.
