I took this personal energy meter test online at NatGeo, and this is how I did:
In the Home: 0.77
Tip: A programmable thermostat can help you easily turn down energy use when you are away or asleep.For ideas on how to reduce your impact at home, visit the Great Energy Challenge Mini Calculators.
On the Road: 5.546
Tip: Use mass transit, ride sharing or a bicycle at least a couple days a week to cut down energy while commuting.For a month-by-month plan to slim down your carbon emissions on the road, in the home, and for everyday living, visit our Energy Diet.
Renewable Energy: 0%
Tip: See if your utility allows you to purchase solar or wind energy for a portion of your electricity use.
In the Air: 1.349
Tip: Consider taking a train instead of a plane for shorter trips.
Apparently, I scored 8 percent lower than the regional average and 23 percent lower than the national average…
