Be Bright with A Little Less Light
According to Energystar.gov, lighting consumes close to 35% of energy used in commercial buildings in the United States. Since this also forms a major chunk of your monthly bills, here areFour Simple Tips from Green Business Bureau to help you be bright with a little less light:
1) Turn off the Lights: Make it a habit to turn off the lights when you are leaving your office room for more than 15 minutes. Post a reminder on the back of your door.
2) Buy Energy Star-Rated Fixtures: Make it an official policy to buy Energy Star rated light bulbs and fixtures.
3) Install Motion Sensors: Install motion sensors that automatically shut off lights when they are not needed.
4) Invite in Sunlight. Open the blinds to create a naturally lit office.
