Energy Forums is focused on saving energy and water in residential facilities.  Forums will be moderated to exclude topics that do not contribute to this focus.

Of course, the concepts and energy initiatives discussed often overlap into other sectors including manufacturing, industrial, large and small commercial, and institutional facilities.  So topics related to these sectors are ok as long as the topic can also be applied to the residential sector.
