Did you know that commercial and industrial buildings account for up to half of energy use in the United States?  Many of the simple energy-saving steps we use at home can be implemented at work, too.

Viewer Tip:  Every October, government organizations, businesses, associations and individuals observe Energy Awareness Month with activities and programs to reduce energy consumption in our daily lives.  Why not make your time at work more energy efficient?
