Red, White, And ... Green?

June 22, 2007
The U.S. House of Representatives Chief Administration Officer issued a report yesterday that pledges to slash the House’s energy consumption by up to 50% by 2017.
In a “Green the Capitol” initiative the House also pledges that it will operate in a carbon-neutral manner within 12 months.
A series of environmental programs will be put into effect in order to reach the goals outlined in the report. For example, purchasing electricity generated from renewable sources, installing energy efficient lighting, reducing the use of coal at the Capitol power plant and switching to hybrid or alternative fuel vehicles are all elements of the plan.
