If your office burns money by lighting unoccupied work areas, look into motion detectors. By turning on the power only when people are present, sensors can slash the energy devoted to lighting by 10 to 40 percent. Set controls to turn off lights automatically after 15 minutes of inactivity. In private offices, adjust the sensor to slight motions, like typing. Also, check into daylighting technology that adjusts artificial light levels based on the amount of natural light in an area. (For more energy-saving advice, see top of page B3.)
