The “We Conserve” program is asking all UW faculty and staff to take the pledge. To do so, go to http://www.conserve.wisc.edu and become one of 1200 faculty and staff who have already taken the pledge. Here are some tips you can do in your own office: turn-off lights when leaving for more than a few minutes; replace incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent; maximize the use of natural light; do not use halogen lights; use limited task lighting; and, report excessive illumination. Lighting accounts for 11 percent of our electricity use.
