Sunlight over bulbs and heating

While dimmer switches would be ideal for all offices, a more immediate way to save energy and money would simply be to turn off the outer row of lights during daylight hours on sunny days at all federal agencies. Additionally, in the winter, the sunny side of the building is usually very hot, so it makes sense to reduce the heating temperature on these sides of the building to use the heat of the sun and less energy.
