The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) has launched a new Conserve North Texas website, ConserveNorthTexas.org, as a regional clearinghouse for energy efficiency, water conservation and transportation programs. The population of Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) is expected to grow by 48 percent to approximately 10.6 million people by 2040, and conservation and resource efficiency will be critical to accommodate this growth.

The website provides users with a "one-stop-shop" for programs, tools, case studies and other resources that address water, energy and transportation topics. today. Natural Awakenings magazine is partnering with NCTCOG to increase awareness of this valuable regional resource.
