    We all use energy every day to power our homes, for transportation, or other uses. How do you use energy in your daily life?

    Keep track of and assess your energy use for 3 days this week.

    Then, post to the DB a summary of how you used energy over these three days.

    What were the end uses of the energy (transportation or commercial/residential)?
    What types of fuel did you use & for what purpose? (Heating/cooling, recreational, etc.)
    Report from which primary energy source your electric company generates electricity (coal, nuclear, etc?)
    Did you use any alternative sources of energy? (Passive solar, perhaps?) Explain.
    Based on the results of your assessment, are you using energy efficiently?
    What changes might you make? Why?
