Introduction

Have you ever wondered about your energy consumption? Why is it so high? Why am I paying what I am paying? How do I reduce my energy consumption? What impact does my energy consumption have on the world around me? These, and many more, are all questions you have asked if you are the one paying the bills and worrying about reducing costs. As we continue to progress and develop more technologies to make our lives better and more efficient, energy needs and more importantly costs, will continue to rise. Many companies do not have the time or resources to address these issues. The reality is, energy has high costs associated with it, but you need to consume energy, there is no way around it. To add to the confusion, many people are trying to sell you some device or system that fixes whatever energy problems they have determined you have.
