Your Energy Priorities

Your Energy Priorities

Ramona Madhosingh-Hector
Urban Sustainability Agent

What are your energy priorities? Is it your cell phone, tablet, or coffeemaker? The way we use energy in our daily lives dictates how we may adjust our spending habits to enable us to afford these indulgences. Would you be willing to bike for one hour to run your laptop computer for 2 hours, the 42-inch plasma for 10 minutes, the cell phone charger for 20 hours, or your clothes dryer for 1 minute, 20 seconds?

Participate in your local Regional Planning Council’s study that investigates how consumers value energy in the residential and business sector. The statewide study collects energy use and opinions regarding household electricity, gasoline usage, and renewable energy resources. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Florida Office of Energy, the study will help to identify strategies to diversify Florida’s energy future.

Your survey input is valuable to help develop new policies for future energy needs.
