Chief's perspective focuses on energy

  • Published
The chief said the Air Force has made great strides in developing alternative fuels in its energy conservation program; however, the enlisted force Airmen have the potential to have the biggest impact in the Air Force's efforts to saving resources.

"By taking simple actions, each Airman saves Air Force energy assets and conserves resources, wrote Chief McKinley. "By turning off lights when rooms are vacant, keeping thermostats between 65-70 degrees Fahrenheit, and switching computer monitors off when not in use, Airmen and their families contribute energy credits to the Air Force's conservation account."

"Through our personal actions, we can save dollars earmarked for energy expenditures. The Air Force dollars we save will more than likely be invested in our quality of life programs, weapons systems or research and development.," wrote the chief.
