Energy Plug Vampire

Commercial Buildings consume 13.6 quads of electricity (35 percent of electricity consumed in the U.S) and generate 826 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions (16 percent of all U.S. carbon dioxide emissions)!

Reducing energy use in commercial buildings would have tremendous positive impact in our environment and energy security, and would save money that can be used to help grow U.S. businesses. In addition, energy efficiency in commercial buildings creates good, skilled and needed jobs in construction and technology, such as engineers, commissioning agents, energy managers, and building operators. | from
