Mandatory Lighting Controls for Commercial buildings
Why are there so many office lights on in commercial office buildings, when nobody is occupying those areas. Mandate the use of green lighting controls (Daylight Harvesting, Absence/Presence detection etc.)
This is addressed in a retrofit pilot program
NOTE: Jacob Sussman's idea "Turn Off Downtown Office Lights at Night When No One is Working" has been merged with this one.
"There are better ways to use that power."
Alex Carter commented
Using sustainable commercial lighting controls properly can reduce greenhouse emmissions by more than 50%. A no brainer so why not?
