Energy Conservation Day- Monday 03 August 2009


(T.G.I.M) Thank God Its Monday.

There really is no rhyme or reason to the image above, at least for me, other than the fact that I thought it was kind of corporate pimpish looking. The site that it comes from is and I have yet to browse through it, so you can beat me to the punch if you desire.

Today, getting up at my usual time which is around 5 or 6 am, I was pondering on what I might think and do different in an attempt achieve optimal results. Due to a few different things that I saw today online, I convinced myself that the time period in which the most energy resources are used and consumed, at least in America, would be during the morning and afternoon hours of the first day of the typical work week on Monday.

Whether its gasoline powered vehicle traffic on the freeway, or electricity used to power industry, I believe that this time period would be a key focal point in regards to a focus on energy conservation and management initiatives, so I decided to simply develop a program, to see if I can get the same or better results for my company by doing less during Monday morning and afternoon. Being a California resident with the Pacific Ocean near by, we of course are the last in the continental U.S. to see the sun set, so I just used my brain to create a strategy to be the first to conserve energy during this time period.

Interestingly enough, the Waste Management pickup for the street that I reside is on Monday morning, so perhaps its inspired by this regular occurance as well. You are invited and encouraged to follow along with this new program if you or your employer finds it beneficial, and we can then come together and share our progress reports.

Stay Tuned.

A different perspective to consider.
