We can help conserve energy by turning off appliances that not being used and do not need electricity for the moment. We can also help the environment by trying to use alternate renewable sources of energy. For example using solar powered gardening lights will save energy. Recycling will be one of the best ways to save energy. By recycling products will help the use of sources that can not be replaced which also use up energy. Recycling will also help the environment and will help conserve energy.
The government has being involved in the conservation of energy and has implemented regulations to reduce the unnecessary use of energy. The government has been directly involved in the reduction of fuels to conserve energy. In 2005, the Bush administration requested a 7 percent improvement in fuel mileageâ€”to 22.2 miles per gallonâ€”for all 2008 model cars (Visualizing environmental science 2007). The government wants for vehicle producers to make vehicles that are fuel efficient which will conserve energy and help the environment. The government also tries to help tax payers and provides tax credits to people who buy energy...
