Message From the Director

As the need to conserve natural resources and limited budget dollars increases, NASA and MAF are under increasing pressure to reduce energy consumption. This endeavor is definitely a team effort, requiring each person to evaluate how they use energy in the workplace.

While savings can be accomplished through large projects such as lighting retrofits and equipment replacement, the efforts of individuals can also have a significant impact on energy consumption. Simple tasks play a part in reducing energy consumption. Some of these tasks include:

• turning off lights when leaving a room

• not propping open exterior doors

• not setting thermostats too high or too low (72 °F or above in the cooling mode and 74 °F or less in the heating mode)

• coordinating HVAC equipment operation with building occupancy schedules

As we move forward in meeting federal mandates and taxpayer expectations, your participation is very much appreciated. Let’s do all we can to protect the resources with which we are entrusted
