It's hard to imagine life without electricity. In our homes, we rely on it to power our lights, appliances, and electronics. Many of us also use electricity to provide our homes with hot water, heat, and air conditioning.

But as we use more electricity in our homes, our electric bills rise. In turn, fossil-fueled power plants not only generate more electricity, but also more pollution. The continued reliance on and depletion of fossil-fuel resources threatens our energy security.
