    Today is Earth Day and a New Jersey group is urging residents to take action to help save energy.

    The Citizens’ Campaign is encouraging New Jersey residents to urge their towns and school boards to conduct energy audits. The group’s chairman Harry Pozycki says that’s an appealing way to reduce costs during difficult economic times.

    “What’s involved there is everything from changing vehicles over to hybrids and other types of energy efficiency vehicles to changing old boilers that are energy inefficient to weatherization treatments.”

    Pozycki says dozens of towns have already conducted such audits and he’d like to see them done statewide. He says the energy savings resulting for an audit can amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.
