Energy Federation Inc.

Energy Federation Inc.At EFI we believe that increased energy efficiency and energy conservation do not necessarily require sacrifices in people's quality of life. Indeed, more efficient products often perform better than conventional products, in that they last longer, as well as save people money through lower utility bills. In addition, more efficient use of energy means reduced need to construct additional power plants, reduced atmospheric emission of carbon dioxide and other gases that contribute to global climate change, reduced emission of sulfur dioxide and gasses that contribute to regional air pollution and acid rain, reduced dependence on fossil fuels, and the obvious economic benefits that follow from the resulting increased savings, investment, and consumer spending.
