The article examines the energy conservation policy in the U.S. An overview of energy management regulations in dealing with lesser energy sources is offered, including public policy rate design as one of the alleviating tools for minimizing environmental concerns. The author emphasizes the growing evidence on the importance of energy conservation as people sought alternative energy sources and system that pollute less and last longer. This scheme includes the recycling of metals to conserve energy resources and offering of incentives for energy conservation to lessen environmental waste and degradation
