Fall is here (in the Northern Hemisphere, that is), and as our thoughts turn to the coming colder weather, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has launched a new website and educational campaign to help people be more energy efficient and save on their energy costs this winter.

Titled “Stay Warm, Save Money,” the campaign focuses on providing simple, cost-effective, energy-saving solutions for individuals and small businesses. The Stay Warm, Save Money website lists no-cost and low-cost energy-savings tips, financial assistance links, long-term solutions for saving energy, and a blog that covers energy-saving topics. You can also find information on performing an energy audit to find out where your home is losing energy — and money!
