Air Force introduces "New Energy Culture"

Tuesday - 10/5/2010, 4:03pm EDT

The Air Force is adopting what it calls a New Energy Culture.

Air Force Secretary Michael Donley and Chief of Staff General Norton Schwartz introduced the concept to airmen in a letter urging them to reduce energy demand, increase supply and change the service's energy culture.

Achieving these goals will require incorporating energy efficiency and conservation into the daily routines within the aviation community.

Air Force leaders say they hope that achieving greater energy efficiency can lead to funds being freed up for other Air Force priorities.
