Saving Energy in Spanish

By Brooke Drake, November 29, 2010, Energy Efficiency, Green, Save Money

Living in Texas, I’ve started noticing that many items whether they are children’s toys to items from the grocery store, are all printed in English and Spanish. With a growing rate of “12.4% of Americans who are frequent Spanish speakers” (according to the U.S. Department of Energy blog), I can see the growing needs for both languages.

The U.S. Department of Energy, specifically the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), has also seen the need to include information for Spanish only speakers.  In effort to connect with all Americans, it has put together tips and tools all in Spanish.  Here are some of those resources the EERE has gathered for the Spanish speaking communities.

  • Ahorro de Energia Guide (Energy Savers).  This is a pamphlet on how to save energy in the home or work. There is also an online version that provides additional details on the items covered in the pamphlet.
  •  This is where you can compare multiple cars’ gas mileage and greenhouse gas emissions. This site also provides ways to drive more efficiently and to save money.
  • U.S.’s Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Spanish Website
  •  This is where you can research services provided by the Federal government.
