To meet the challenges of the 21st century, we must work to ensure a clean, safe, and sustainable energy future. This National Energy Action Month, we can build on the progress we have made by recommitting to increasing our energy security, strengthening our economy, combating climate change, and improving the environment.
October marks Energy Action Month. This year, the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) is looking to promote energy- and water conservation practices throughout the Federal government. As a nation and as individuals we have the power to make the transition to use clean energy.

Doing Our Part in National Energy Action Month
What are you doing this October for National Energy Action Month? Have you ever thought about it? What can I or my family do to better this planet we call home. Some people choose to install solar panels on their home or draw clean energy from wind turbines. Can you image the possible savings or better yet the self satisfaction you know your doing something positive for the environment.
2014 Toyota Hybrid is an Option to Save the Planet
Another option to doing your part, is thinking about going green with a hybrid vehicle. Hybrid vehicles like the Toyota Camry Hybrid are starting to make their imprint on saving the world one mile at a time.
Toyota offers several different driving modes for the Camry Hybrid. The standard mode is Drive, which incorporates hybrid/EV driving automatically. Those seeking to squeeze a bit more fuel out of each gallon will press the ECO button, which softens throttle response and reduces the use of the air conditioning compressor. Lastly, there is an EV mode, which runs the vehicle solely on electricity for up to 1.6 miles at speeds below 25 miles per hour – this modest ability to run electric-only helps the Camry Hybrid deliver its impressive urban efficiency.
Some key features in the Toyota Camry Hybrid are:
Optitron instrumentation with speedometer, hybrid system power meter, coolant temperature, fuel gauges; TFT Multi-Information Display with customizable settings, odometer, tripmeter, tachometer, current/average fuel economy, distance to empty, speed, TPMS, shift-position indicator, navigation with turn-by-turn directions (where equipped), EV and ECO Mode indicators, energy monitor and warning messages.
Projector-beam halogen headlights with auto on/off feature.
Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT)
Hybrid engine: 2.5-Liter 4-Cylinder DOHC 16-Valve Dual VVT-i; EV and ECO Modes.
Power tilt/slide moonroof with one-touch open/close with jam protection, driver and front passenger illuminated vanity mirrors, and rear-seat reading lights.
Star Safety System™ — includes Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), 4-wheel Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology®
