The purple dots are links to information about utility programs in the

conservation per se.

Let me know what you think.

I will like to find state rebate programs that offer more traditional
technologies such as low flush toilets, low flow showerheads; compact
flourescent bulbs and high efficiency lighting - lamps, fixtures.
Usually, these programs are run by either utilities and/or program
developers such as Honeywell DMC.

I have never heard of such an absurd thing. Americans can use as much
energy as they want. How dare you to think otherwise.
