Energy Sources and Usage
Utilizing alternative sources of energy has a positive effect on our environment, health and economy.
We are dependent upon energy to power our homes and everything in them we need for daily life. The average American home uses 958 kilowatt hours per month, costing Utah residents about $71 per month in 2011.

When we are considering sources for this energy, we have options for choosing power from less-polluting means and supporting the development of renewable energy sources. We should also look at the appliances that use the most power – fridge, air conditioner, etc.
