1,698 voters participated in this survey
Since 1990 US power demand has risen 25%. As it starts getting dark early in these winter months, I've noticed many businesses closed, yet with all lights left on. I was always told when I leave a room empty "turn out the light" it is a waste of power.
1. At closing time,when the last employee leaves, should a business turn off all lights with the exception of a lighted "closed" sign?
2. Do you believe there is too much power wasted during the hours a business is closed?
3. If there is an alarm system installed do you believe leaving the lights on prevents burglary?
