The Switch Energy Project is a groundbreaking film, video and education program uniting diverse audiences in a shared understanding of energy and promoting efficiency.

This 'a-political', 'agenda-free' documentary works to take a highly politicized, polarized topic and discover how the sweeping transition of using less energy will most likely happen all over the world. Switch focuses on practical realities and encourages a balanced understanding.  Switch is about changing the way we use energy, to realize the many economic and environmental benefits of efficiency.
