Power Down

The Rev. Canon Sally G. Bingham, President, The Regeneration Project
Chris King, Chief Regulatory Officer, eMeter
Gregory Walton, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Stanford University

We know what we should do to reduce our personal and societal carbon footprint. Why don’t we do more? Many citizens and consumers have made strides big and small in their personal and professional lives but can clean tech make energy efficiency sexy? Providing real-time data in a meaningful way is one key to giving individuals information they can use to make more informed decisions about the power they use at home. “Wow, that toaster sucks a lot of juice!” Congregations around the country are realizing that energy efficiency is good for their church coffers and creation. Some advocates are turning to social media to generate buzz and action. Join us for a conversation about using technology, psychology, and even the fear of God to encourage more sustainable lifestyles.
