Resumen

El presente estudio probó un modelo estructural para evaluar el efecto de las orientaciones de hedonia y eudaimonia, así como la edad de los participantes sobre un factor de segundo orden al que se denominó Conducta de Ahorro de Energía Eléctrica. Tal factor quedó integrado por dos categorías de acciones: monitoreo y apagado del consumo de electricidad. Se analizaron las respuestas de una muestra intencional de 460 participantes, habitantes con viviendas en diversas colonias de Hermosillo, Sonora (113 varones y 127 mujeres) y de la Ciudad de México (108 varones y 112 mujeres), es decir, un total de 221 varones y 239 mujeres, con edades de entre 15 a 66 años (M = 34.5 años; DE = 13.40 años). El modelo exhibió bondad de ajuste y explicó 30% de la varianza en la conducta de ahorro de energía eléctrica. Entre los resultados principales se encontró que la edad del participante y la eudaimonia ejercen efectos directos y positivos sobre el factor de segundo orden de Conducta de Ahorro de Energía Eléctrica, mientras que la hedonia no impactó directamente sobre dicha conducta.
