I would say it is best to install a solar panel on the roof of your house. It saves energy consumption in various ways. Not, only that but also it will reduce your power bills to a large extent.

And as for the road, transportation accounts for 67% of all U.S. oil consumption. The good news is that there is a lot you can do to save energy and money at home and in your car. Start making small changes today. The key to achieving these savings in your home is a whole-house energy efficiency plan. To take a whole-house approach, view your home as an energy system with interdependent parts. For example, your heating system is not just a furnace—it's a heat-delivery system that starts at the furnace and delivers heat throughout your home using a network of ducts. Even a top-of-the-line, energy-efficient furnace will waste a lot of fuel if the ducts, walls, attic, windows, and doors are not properly sealed and insulated. Taking a whole-house approach to saving energy ensures that dollars you invest to save energy are spent wisely.
Energy-efficient improvements not only make your home more comfortable, they can yield long-term financial rewards. Reduced utility bills more than make up for the higher price of energy-efficient appliances and improvements over their lifetimes. In addition, your home could bring in a higher price when you sell.
Thanks for sharing this valuable information. In addition to this also conserving water can help in conserving energy.

Don't you think saving water is equivalent to energy consumption. Also, the greenhouse gases emitted as a byproduct, encourages us to reduce water consumption and save energy.

The use of household appliances like dishwashers and hot water heaters consume large amount of water. These appliances are very energy intensive hence conservation at home offers the greatest energy and money saving potential.

In today's world the high energy costs, electric and gas bills can be a big problem. For saving energy turn off lights, fans, and other appliance when you are leaving a room and houses. You are also buying efficient home appliance for uses because it is very important to save energy.

There are designs out there for a device that uses heat itself (a form of waste energy) and converts it back into electricity. It's called a thermoacoustic prime mover, and is very cheap and simple to build. There are designs all over the net for different versions of the same thing, but they all do the same thing. It can also be adapted for three different uses. If you heat it up, it generates sound which can be converted into electricity via a piezoelectric device, which you already have in your own home in the for of a smoke detector speaker. If you put sound into it via a loudspeaker, or any sound wave generator for that matter, you can transfer heat from one place to another (with a few devices added) turning it into a heat pump. Finaly, you can use one to convert heat into sound to cool something off, such as you see in some refrigerators (not all refrigerators use freon). Essentialy, you can lower your power bill by, instead of using the airconditioner, sucking heat out of the air, turning it into usable electricity, and using that electricity to power other things in your house.

I must agree on this people might be thinking that there are enough energy source for 100 year or may be more years but our natural resources are really getting decrease at a vary rapid rate. We need to think of using another source for energy consumption and solar energy is the best cheap way for this energy problem. I think govt. should encourage people using more and more solar energy sources.
