Calculate your household’s greenhouse gas emissions
An online calculator allows you to figure out your household’s greenhouse gas emissions and learn tips to reduce them.
Before you start, gather your most recent electric or gas bills so that you can use real numbers to compute your energy consumption. Since energy bills vary by season, use an average of winter and summer values if you can. If you buy Green Power Switch® blocks, each 150- kWh block represents about 12 percent of a typical household’s monthly use. You can enter your GPS purchase in the calculator and evaluate increasing your purchase to help further offset your emissions.
The site also suggests other ways to reduce your energy use and waste disposal costs.
