Conserve will feature new content on an ongoing basis, within topic categories that focus generally on saving energy and money ( Go Green & Save ), home and family ( Together at Home ), community programs and reader input ( Community ), special features and multimedia ( Spotlight ) and energy-saving products and services ( Smart Energy PartnersSM ).

In addition to energy-saving tips, ideas and solutions, Conserve will provide games, puzzles and other content to engage children and families.
