The city spent all this money installing cameras on some intersections to catch people going through red lights. Well most of them don't work correctly. Instead of just letting them sit there, fix them so the city/state can start collecting on fines from those.
Shut down computer monitors during off hours. The average monitor uses 55 watts per hour. If the average off time was ten hours then: That would be 550 watts a day, 17050 watts a month, 200,750 watts a year that is wasted. If you time that by $.13 per Kwh, that is $26.10 per monitor a year. That is a lot of money throughout the US. Just on my base alone we can save $17829.82 a year.
I have seen several times, police cars sitting empty but still running. While there eating in a restaurant, or in another police station. If they were to just shut the car off while they are doing those things, we could save a lot of money and gasoline, that we all know we are short on both.
