Url: https://www.epa.gov/egrid/power-profiler
Publisher: United States. Environmental Protection Agency
Description: This site from the EPA provides a useful Energy Pollution Calculator which will help students and other interested persons calculate the greenhouse gases and other pollutants created from the energy they consume. The calculator determines users' power grid region based on ZIP code and electric utility, compares the fuel mix and air emissions rates of the electricity in users' region to the national average, and determines the air emissions impacts of electricity use in users' home or business. The calculator is a handy tool and very easy to use.
