Many problems or potential problems can be solved easily, economically and with minimal site disturbance, despite rhetoric to the contrary. For instance, energy monitoring, behavior modification, and motion sensors are known to reduce energy costs by as much as 15%. Proper day-lighting and low wattage lighting can reduce energy bills by another 10-20%. Hedging against energy cost increases can be achieved by installing alternative energy, such as Photo Voltaic (PV) solar panels for electricity and solar energy for hot water heaters and radiant heating.
