Reducing energy usage lowers the quantity of electricity required by power plants, which in turn lowers the daily amount of fossil fuels burnt. Even a minor adjustment might have a big impact.
Fossil fuel extraction becomes less necessary since there is less need for energy. It's crucial from an economic perspective to protect our limited resources. Fossil fuels will become more costly as they grow more and more difficult to get.
When discussing energy there are two sources: renewable and non-renewable. The natural resource that has no negative effects on the environment is a renewable source. Natural resources for renewable energy are abundant and sustainable. These energy sources are environmentally friendly and can be renewed organically.
Non-renewable energy sources are harmful to the environment and have a finite supply. Non-renewable resources can be taken from the planet but eventually run out.
