Earth Day 2013
Happy Earth Day! Today is a day to consider your part in conserving energy, minimizing waste, and protecting our planet’s natural resources.
To commemorate Earth Day and do our part to conserve a little extra, we will be shutting the lights off in the office from 12 to 1 p.m.
According to NSTAR, 29% of energy use in non-residential buildings is used for lighting. If you turn off the lights whenever you leave a room, you can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 0.15 pounds per hour.
Here are a few other ways you can help conserve energy, not just today—but every day!
