EPA Green Homes
The Environmental Protection Agency has created a new Web site to assist homeowners, buyers,
and renters in finding and maintaining a green home. The Green Homes site, epa.gov/greenhomes,
goes room by room to pinpoint places where residents can reduce energy waste through efficient
energy and water usage, renewable energy, green home building materials and household products,
and recycling from home construction and household activities. For those in the market to buy
or build a home, the site also gives advice on how to select the most environmentally friendly location.

An individual product draws relatively little standby power, but a typical American home has forty products constantly drawing power. Together these amount to almost 10% of residential electricity use. more info
