American Energy Project is an environmentalist advocacy and action organization located in Oceanside, California. The organization promotes the insulation of American attic spaces to reduce heating and cooling leaks, thereby reducing carbon emissions. 1


Climate Change Activism

American Energy Project is a public charity devoted to installing insulation and sealing heating and cooling leaks to cut carbon emissions and combat climate change. The organization focuses on insulating the attics in homes to help homeowners reduce energy consumption and waste. The organization claims that if every home in America had an insulated attic, it would be the equivalent of removing 23 million cars from the road, helping to prevent warmer summers, colder winters, and rising oceans. 2

American Energy Project estimates that insulating every American home according to the standards of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will reduce 116,610,0000 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere annually. 3

The organization also advocates that people drive less, use public transit, carpool, bike, walk, and telework to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 4

Other Environmental Activism

American Energy Project claims that energy conservation through activities like insulating attic space also has other environmental benefits besides reducing greenhouse gas emissions. These include reducing the amount of toxic chemicals like mercury and lead released into the air, thus reducing illnesses like heart disease, stroke, lung issues, and brain development problems. The organization also argues that attic insulation improves air quality within homes. 5
