The Heat Is On

ARCHIVES

As Washington continues to roast in 90-plus degree heat, the company that manages Government Executive's office building has taken a few unusual (for us, at least) steps to save power, such as dimming hallway lighting and encouraging employees to close their blinds. That got us wondering whether the government -- an aspiring leader in conservation -- is making similar efforts. Has your agency gone to any special lengths to reduce energy usage during the latest heat wave, and has it affected your comfort in the office?
