THE PYRAMID of Conservation… IS A BASIC SHAPE…

This is a good general guide to the logical steps in making a home more energy efficient. It starts off with knowledge, knowing what you are doing and why does seem like a good idea. Above that are a bunch of things that are free, mainly lifestyle changes. then we go for the very inexpensive things. Notice that in a logical world (where’s that again ?) The complex and expensive things, like solar electric, are the final tip, after all the measures with better payback have been addressed.
This diagram is only about Energy. Water conservation could also be slipped in there, somewhere around the level of appliances.
thanks to Chris Martin for finding this.
