Go Green for Labor Day break
Energy Education manger Angelyn Holmes provides these tips to help increase energy savings during the Labor Day break. 

Turn off electronic equipment such as computers, monitors, speakers, printers, copiers, etc. Unplug fans, radios, coffeemakers, etc. Close blinds and tilt the slats upward to keep the sun from heating up spaces. Turn lights off in your office, open areas and classrooms.
