The Home Depot Initiates Energy Conservation Measures


Atlanta, In response to the government’s call to conserve energy in the light of the recent hurricane, The Home Depot will implement energy-saving measures in all U.S. stores by Sept. 8. The measures, which will remain in effect until further notice, include reducing the use of ceiling lights in stores equipped with skylights and cutting back illumination of lighting displays by five hours per day, per store. The retailer estimates these actions alone will save approximately 15 million kilowatt hours per month. The chain is also challenging its associates to be more vigilant about energy consumption throughout store operations, and is increasing its efforts to educate consumers about energy conservation.

In addition, The Home Depot will implement energy-conservation measures in its U.S. store-support facilities. A similar program is in place in its 123 Canadian stores.
