On October 5, 2018, energy efficiency advocates from around the country came together with corporations, state and local governments, non-profits, and other groups to celebrate the third annual Energy Efficiency Day.
In just its second year, Energy Efficiency Day has made incredible strides forward in raising awareness of money-saving habits, products, and lifestyle choices to consumers. What started as an idea between a handful of efficiency-minded organizations, Energy Efficiency Day grew in 2017 to involve hundreds of companies, non-profits, academic organizations, and utilities, along with dozens of state and local governments.
Tomorrow is Energy Efficiency Day.
For the second year in a row, a growing network of advocates, companies, government agencies, utilities, and others from across the country will join to showcase the benefits of energy efficiency. The message of Energy Efficiency Day is simple: Save energy. Save money.

I’m not going to talk about Elon Musk’s newest adventures in electric vehicles (or trips to Mars) or the latest groundbreaking efforts of New York’s Reforming the Energy Vision proceeding. Instead, I’m going to spend the next 600 words praising energy efficiency – the unsung hero of the clean energy world.
