Abstract

A carefully controlled field study has shown that reminder stickers attached to light switch plates reduce lighting energy consumption in private offices. The magnitude of the energy savings is large enough for the switch stickers to be cost effective in 10 weeks or less. A questionnaire administered at the end of the study showed that people were generally receptive to the switch stickers as reminders for saving energy.
