  • Commentary - small measures can yield big energy savings

    Apr 17, 2009

    We take energy for granted. When you flip the switch, the lights come on. When the thermostat reaches the red line, you hear the hum of a distant fan and warm air blows out of the grate. For much of the world's population - and even for parts of the U.S. - that isn't the way it is. Energy is a limited commodity. There is only so much to go around in any area. When demand exceeds production, something has to give. In many places that means almost daily "brown outs," where the flow of electricity is intermittent or irregular.
