Steps for energy savings over the holiday weekend
Turn off all possible electronic equipment, including computers, monitors, speakers, printers, etc. Unplug items such as fans, chargers, radios and appliances such as coffeemakers. Close blinds and tilt the slats upward. Remember that temperatures may be cooler than usual, as heat may not be on in some spaces. As always, turn off the lights as you leave.
