The night the lights went out at work
Good Morning Everyone, and Happy Friday to you,
I’d like to thank everyone for your continued efforts in supporting our “Energy Awareness Program” here at Initek. Many of you may recall the “Energy Crisis” in 2001!! (CREATED BY ENRON AND THOSE OTHER ASSHOLE TEXAS POWER COMPANIES). It does appear that the State has gotten a reasonably good grasp of controlling the outages in comparison to where we were in 2001. However, the cost of energy continues to escalate.
Though we have done a tremendous job of reducing our consumption (THEY CHARGE US MORE, WE HAVE TO USE LESS. MAKES SENSE, DON'T IT?) here at Initek in the past couple of years, I’d like to ask for your support in maintaining the level that we have been able to enjoy here. A couple of reminders:
v Power down (WHICH REALLY MEANS "TURN OFF") PCs and Monitors at the end of the work day
v Turn off lights in Lavatories (THESE ARE THE BATHROOMS) when not in use
v Turn off TVs throughout the building when not in use
v Turn on the dark in offices when you’re not in the office
v Maintain AC Boundaries
True; (I'M THE ONLY "LOGISTICS MANAGER" IN THE WORLD TO DARE USE A SEMICOLON) these may seem like small items, but they are a major part of our savings when combined. Many of you have implemented these same measures at home, and have mentioned the noticeable savings there as well. We always appreciate new ideas that may further help Initek reduce our energy consumption, so, please feel free to pass on your ideas that may also help us out at home.
A big one at home; the placement of appliances in near proximity to Thermostats (DUNNO WHY, I JUST LIKE CAPITALIZING THIS WORD). (a definite No-No) You might double check this tonight!!
Once again, Senior Management (THE ONES WHO REAP THE REWARDS OF YOUR HARD AND POINTLESS WORK BECAUSE THE WERE SMART ENOUGH AND CRAFTY ENOUGH TO GET WHERE THEY ARE) asked that I pass along their appreciation for all of your efforts, hard work and sacrifices for your contribution and support of our “Energy Awareness Program” here at Initek.
Have a nice day!! (OR ELSE!)
