Virginia Energy Sense is the Commonwealth’s energy education program under the guidance of the State Corporation Commission. Virginia has set a goal to reduce electric energy consumption 10 percent below 2006 levels by 2020.
Our mission is to work toward that goal by helping Virginians understand their energy use, and what they can do to save energy easily and cost effectively. Energy efficiency and energy conservation are the most affordable, available tools to achieve this goal. That’s where Virginia Energy Sense comes in: Everyone can do their part to help, with the right information.
The Virginia Energy Sense program provides the tools to educate and empower all Virginians to get involved and lower the amount of electricity they use.
Reducing energy use puts money back in consumers’ pockets. It also helps our state’s economy and cleans our air, land and water. That’s why saving energy just makes good sense.
This website serves as the main resource for the Virginia Energy Sense program. Here you can:
- Use the My Energy Star tool to find tips and home improvement projects to take your home to the next level!
- Take the 10% Challenge (right bar) to reduce your own energy use
