Purdue: Turn Off The Lights!

From his press office:

As a component of the Governor’s Conserve Georgia announcements today, Governor Perdue launched the Governor’s Energy Challenge. This is a commitment by Governor Perdue that Georgia’s state government will reduce its energy usage 15 percent by 2020 over the 2007 energy use levels through energy efficiency or in combination with renewable energy. Governor Perdue is challenging Georgia’s citizens, businesses, organizations, local governments and school systems to meet the state’s 15 percent reduction goal.

    Whatever happened to the Governor’s plan (while he was running for office in 2002) for reducing the number of government workers having to commuting to work by 20%?

    What was that term he proposed..? Ah, “tele-commuting” as I recall.

  2. Dave Bearse says:

    Like W’s handling of the deficit, we should expect the Perdue energy plan to show actual reduction begin in 2011, what with it takin’ a few years to get things going, and him retiring.

    I remember the plan of 2002. Employees would be able to work from home on their computer. Has anyone thought of helping the Governor recall what he ran his campaign on?

    If all the employees would just go to China for a couple of weeks and shut off the power to their offices…
