In â€œKilowatt Oursâ€, film-maker Jeff Barrie traces electricity from the light switch to the source, revealing the hidden consequences (or not so hidden) of power generation. The story offers a powerful message of hope, as it follows Jeff and his wife Heather on a personal journey to do their part in their home to conserve energy with remarkable results. Then, Jeff goes on a nationwide search for inspiring solutions currently in use across America, to reduce energy usage and tap green forms of renewable energy like wind and solar. The examples are inspiring and leave the audience empowered to do their part. The film has inspired thousands to practice good stewardship of energy resources, and has led to the passage of energy efficiency legislation in the state of Tennessee.
