The Epa Hits Pennsylvania Avenue

THE EPA HITS PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE

Call it the Green White House. For 11 months, a team of 100 environmental and energy experts have crawled through the Presidential pad, looking to save energy and make the place more environment-friendly. The results, according to a White House report: New lighting fixtures and bulbs are producing energy savings of 65% to 75%; new refrigerators could save another $3,000 to $6,000 a year. Retrofitting steam radiators with thermostatic control valves will save up to $1,500. And recycling cooling water will halve the cost of sewage treatment. But there's more to come. As one Environmental Protection Agency staffer put it: "The place is like your grandfather's garage. They've got a can of this or a bucket of that lying around."EDITED BY KEITH H. HAMMONDS
