Energy Conservation Dept Of Electrical Engineering 11 ENERGY CONSERVATION IN INDUSTRY AND OTHER PLACES: Energy conservation is the practice of decreasing the quantity of energy used. It may be achieved through efficient energy use, in which case energy use is decreased while achieving a similar outcome, or by reduced consumption of energy.Solar power is easily one of the best ways to power a home.

Although the initial investment can be significant, you are basically getting free energy for the rest of the home’s life.
