Description:The DOE and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, among others, launched in December 2005 a campaign called The Power is in Your Hands. The campaign provides consumers with the information and tools they need to manage their home energy bills; informs them about the connection between household energy use and energy prices; and encourages them to use energy efficiency to reduce their energy use thereby enhancing energy security. The campaign features a new consumer booklet with energy-saving tips and a new Web site, which features resources, tools, and links to more information from campaign partners. It also includes additional consumer materials as well as television and radio spots and placement of print ads.
