Put Energy Efficiency in Play

The National Hockey League (NHL®) and its partners are making energy-saving plays to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, including switching to more efficient lighting and installing solar panels.

Join them by taking action at home or at school to reduce your energy use. Conduct an energy audit to find out how much energy your electronics draw when they’re not in use. Then, make your own energy-saving plays to reduce your energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.
