Saving money on electricity

October 5th, 2012

If the lights are not on, nobody’s there!  Thats the mantra for the Berkeley County Council.

County facilities director Tommy Puffenburger has installed energy-saving motion detectors in the Dunn Building and the Judicial Center. The lights and thermostat don’t come on until someone enters the room. They switch off when the room is unoccupied.

So far, Berkeley County has saved over $2000  in one month in the Dunn Building, and $2,184 in one month in the Judicial Center, according to Deputy Administrator Alan Davis.
