  • When a house is occupied, the thermostat should be set at 65 to 68 degrees F for maximum energy efficiency.

  • Install a central air conditioning system only when whole house air conditioning is needed.

How come with all the advances in technology, solar power and wind power are still in their nascent state to provide energy on our planet? Where I live in Malta a small sunny island, both abound but their use is still understudied. http://www.fao.org/docrep/T4470E/t4470e0j.htm

I'm sure there are many countries with these same potentially energy efficient resources available.
