On Power

On Personal Responsibility

“Your energy bill is one bill that you CAN control." Energy Hog website

Energy Hog website, http://www.energyhog.org

"By developing an appreciation for energy efficiency at an early age, children are able to make smart energy choices and encourage their parents to do the same.” Energy Secretary Abraham

The Energy Hog campaign is aimed at the energy efficiency improvements executable at the scale of the individual homeowner. The educational component targets children through the "Hog Buster Training Cam"p, emphasizing that each citizen has a personal responsibility to increase energy efficiency in everyday life.  For adults, promoting cost savings are the primary advantages of living a more energy-efficient lifestyle, including providing information for energy-related tax credits.

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Territory

On Distributed Development

The Energy Hog program advocates energy-efficiency improvements made to existing private homes.  The program does not address other planning or development strategies, instead opting to offer energy guidance and reinforcing support to the models of settlement common in America today.  Many of the efficiency suggestions are specifically targeted to the owners of single-family detached homes located on private lots.  For instance, such suggestions include landscaping the area surrounding one’s home to reduce cooling costs by planting trees.

On Lifestyle

On Nuclear Families

“Energy Hog – a half human, half Hog that can suck the energy out of your home faster than you can say, “Why did the lights go out Mom?” Energy Hog website

The children’s education component of the Energy Hog campaign is predicated on the belief that children will, first, encourage energy-efficient behavior in their parents and, second, grow up to be energy-efficient adults.  The former expectation does less to “support” the nuclear family than rather depend on it for much of the success of the program.

On Owner-Occupation

The adult education component of the Energy Hog website gears each of its energy-saving recommendations to home improvements, ranging from turning off unused appliances and electronics to purchasing new appliances to weatherization and insulation. While the ultimate incentive is reducing one’s energy bill whether renting or owning, most of the more effective actions on the website’s “Energy Checklist” are large-scale system improvements, therefore executable by homeowners.  Additionally, one of the cited reasons for wanting to invest in efficiency improvements listed is the potential to increase the home’s resale value.  While many of the tax credits available and promoted through the Energy Hog program are offered to renters, many of the credited improvements typically fall under the responsibility of a landlord.

On Alternative Standards of Comfort

Should energy efficiency change the way we live? The Energy Hog website is sponsored by the Alliance to Save Energy, whose website defines “Energy Efficiency” in part as  “[g]etting the desired energy services — comfortable homes, profitable businesses, convenient transportation — with less energy use, less air pollution, and lower total cost.” http://ase.org/content/article/detail/938.  This concept of energy efficiency “is a far cry from the energy conservation images and practices of old - of doing with less or doing without, of being uncomfortable or less comfortable.”http://ase.org/section/aboutus

On Risk

Background

Energy Outreach Colorado, the Colorado Governor’s Energy Office, and the Ad Council founded the Energy Hog public service campaign.  Along with the Alliance to Save Energy and others, the program is sponsored by the US Department of Energy and was launched on 9 March 2010.  The advertising campaign lasted for four years, though the website continues to offer resources to children and adults alike and educational events centered on the program still occur.

 
Since the launch of the Energy Hog, the US Department of Education has also teamed up with the Ad Council to produce a similar campaign aimed at ‘tweens and young teenagers, asking “What’s your excuse?”  (www.loseyourexcuse.org)
 
launched in 2004.

WE PROVIDE HIGH TRUST FLOW AND CITATION FLOW BLOG COMMENTS BACKLINKS WITH ON DA PA Are Citation and Trust flow metrics really a necessary statistic?There was a time when SEO was at a nascent stage and primary metrics such as Google Page Rank mattered a lot in SEO. Today, SEO has advanced far beyond the domain of Page Rank and as such, secondary metrics such as trust flow, domain authority, citation flow, etc., have taken over Google Page Rank in terms of importance as far as ranking in Google is concerned. high citation flow backlinks

Mesin CTCP merupakan jenis Computer To Conventional Plate yang digunakan dalam industri percetakan, bila disandingkan dengan mesin digital printing tentu akan membuat semakin lengkap usaha advertising yang dimiliki, dan untuk lebih banyak mengetahui informasi digital printing terbaru bisa langsung mengunjungi pada mesin digital printing website.

Akan lebih lengkap jika menggunakan mesin cutting laser yang digunakan untuk memotong acrylic, serta mesin cutting sticker untuk membuat cutting sticker, sehingga usaha digital printing yang anda jalankan semakin lengkap.

Mesin digital printing outdoor sendiri digunakan untuk cetak banner karena memiliki ukuran area print 3,2 meter, sedangkan untuk mesin digital printing indoor lebih difungsikan untuk cetak sticker.

There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.
