Energy: Curriculum and Activities

For nearly 30 years, the Northwest has been a leader in treating energy efficiency and conservation as a power resource. The region learned fast that a megawatt saved is the equivalent of a megawatt produced. As of 2007, energy efficiency accounted for only one percent of all electricity production in the United States. But in the Northwest, it accounted for 10 percent thanks to collaboration among the Bonneville Power Administration, Northwest Power and Conservation Council, regional utilities, state agencies and environmental interests.
