Eliminating Overhead Lighting in Regional & HQ Offices

In R6 we burn 1000's of overhead lights on 8 floors that are totally unneeded because we have excellent lighting in the cubes under the overhead storage bins. This same situation probably exists in other Regions, HQ, & other agencies. Eliminating the use of all of this unneeded lighting would result in a very large saving in electricity & the money it costs, & result in a large saving of energy. A by-product of eliminating all of this glaring lighting is that it would also create a much more pleasant working environment, in addition to all the money & energy saved.
