Mandate Electrical Demand Reduction During Off-Duty Hours

Mandate via Presidential Directive: all federal offices, employees and contract staff once off-duty shall turn off monitors (not simply sleep mode), fans, cubicle lighting, overhead lighting, ceiling lighting and all other non-essential electrical devices.


Too many lights, fans & monitors remain on after hours. The savings will be tens of millions of dollars (or more). This will also create added synergy in regard to reducing the federal carbon footprint. Lead by example.
