Abstract or Summary
  • Understanding the motivations behind the daily energy use practices of individuals may be very important for encouraging people to live more sustainably. This study delves into the motivations that influence the energy use of individuals in Corvallis, Oregon. Using a survey in conjunction with Energize Corvallis, the faculty, staff, and student body of Oregon State University was asked a variety of questions to learn about their spiritual beliefs and their energy conservation practices. Although no overall correlation was found between spiritual beliefs and energy use, it was determined that for many people, spiritual beliefs greatly influenced their desire to save energy. This study recommends that when promoting sustainable energy use practices, evoking the spiritual, ethical, and moral beliefs of people may encourage the most change.
