I suggest that all new government buildings be constructed utilizing "daylighting" technology in place of flourescent lighting where practical. "Daylighting" refers to the use of products ranging from skylights to polycarbonate glass substitutes. These products spread light efficiently throughout the day while blocking UV rays. This would significantly cut energy consumption during daylight hours while encouraging growth in this industry and creating jobs.
