If you’re a regular Environmental Forum reader, first of all thank you! Second, hopefully you already know about our work through Envision Charlotte with the Duke Energy Smart Energy Now® program. We’ve been working with this team to develop creative and engaging programs that will help our team members understand and conserve energy at the office (and at home).

In fact, we recently shared details on a new energy efficiency hunt program through the Smart Energy Now blog. Please take a look and let us know how we are doing!

Has anyone in management thought of converting to LED lighting to save energy? CFL bulbs save energy but contain mercury and are not environmentaly friendly.

@ Doug – Thank you for your suggestion. Our corporate properties team is always evaluating new energy efficiency opportunities and technologies. We do use LED in some of our operations and responsible recycle our CFLs as well.
