Department of Energy: What's It Good For?

Talk about the Booboisie...

Nationally, the department has 9,000 buildings and a huge electric bill, $190 million a year, of which about $76 million goes to lighting, the report said. The auditors said more efficient lighting would save American taxpayers $2.2 million a year and free up enough electricity to meet the needs of 3,200 homes.

Oh, no--that's not all! DoE also likes night-time air conditioning!

With nearly $300 million in annual utility costs, the Department could realize significant savings by using setbacks in its buildings. We estimate that the Department could save over $11.5 million in annual utility costs.
