  • 1. The Crow Creek Road Conserver Energy Project By Janice Crawford Educational Technology 360 University of Alaska, Southeast Dr. Jason Ohler 11/1/2007
  • 2.

    • Reduce pollution
    • Save money

  • 10.
    • What if 1 million people found alternative means to travel 5 miles, 1 day/week for a year?
    • 52 weeks in year X 5 miles = 260 miles
    • 260 mi./20 mi. per gallon = 13 gallons of gas
    • 13 gallons X $3.00 per gallon = $39.00
    • Multiply all this by 1 million people:
    • 13 million gallons of gas
    • $39,000,000
    • So much is saved!
    What a difference we could make
  • 11. Questions for further exploration… Is it better for the environment and my wallet to live closer to the town centers that I travel to and support me? Should I move closer to the town center? Should I drive a more fuel efficient car or one that runs on alternative energy sources? Should I car pool more?
