The following excerpts are taken from an article authored by EnSave’s Chief Operating Officer, Amelia Gulkis for the 25 x ’25 Alliance. 25 x ’25 is an organization devoted to getting 25 percent of our energy from renewable resources by the year 2025.

“The last few years have seen a blossoming of interest in environmental topics within our popular culture as well as a renewed focus on agriculture and how our food is produced. Both topics are of critical importance in the coming decades as we figure out how to reconcile the need to reduce our consumption of non-renewable resources while struggling to feed a growing global population.”
“..we at EnSave view conservation and efficiency as the first step in addressing energy independence. We have named our approach the “Energy Pyramid,” with energy analysis, conservation and efficiency as the foundation of energy decision-making. After a farmer has made their operation as efficient as possible, they move up the pyramid to consider time of use management and renewable energy as they apply to their operation.”
“…giving a priority to reducing energy consumption allows the efficient investment in energy resources that reduce our dependency on fossil fuels, boost our economy and improve our environment.”
