Lowe's Home Improvement
Lowe's Energy Center is your source for alternative energy solutions, such as solar energy, wind power, and other renewable energy sources.

Are you thinking about powering your house using an alternative energy source? Whether you're considering solar energy, wind power, or another type of renewable energy, head to Lowe's in-store Energy Center to get started. Our simple three-step process — MEASURE, REDUCE, and GENERATE — will get you on your way to saving energy and cutting your utility costs.

Step 1: MEASURE Your Energy Use

The first step in achieving your energy conservation goal is learning where your home's energy use currently stands. Lowe's offers a variety of meters and monitors to measure your home's energy consumption. Once you've learned how much power your home is using, you can move on to the next step: reducing your energy intake.

Step 2: REDUCE Your Energy Consumption

Did you know your electrical devices use power whenever they're plugged in, even if they're turned off? In addition to online resources, like our Home Audit Tool, Lowe's offers a variety of energy-saving tools, such as power strips, sensors, and timers to shut your devices off when they're not being used. A few small changes can make a big impact on your utility bills and prepare you for your next step: generating your own renewable energy.

Step 3: GENERATE Your Own Renewable Energy

Solar panels and wind turbines can provide some or all of the electricity a typical home needs. Lowe's offers systems that are grid-tied, meaning they're connected to the utility for backup or additional power. Solar power can also provide you with electricity on the go. Whether you're camping or working at a job site, portable solar battery kits can charge up your RV, cell phone, and laptop batteries, keeping you powered up without tying you down.


ENERGY STAR qualified appliances can save 20% – 30% in energy costs over the course of just one year.
