QuickTake: Don't Forget to Turn Out the Lights

While exploring several news sources in Thailand, I came across this story about the government's campaign to reduce the country's oil import bill. Turn off your air conditioner during the lunch hour and turn off a light for five minutes in the evening and you'll have done your civic duty as a citizen of Thailand. Just in case doing your civic duty isn't motivation enough, the government announced discounts on electric bills for people who reduce their energy use compared to the same month a year ago.

I think this is a great idea! Saving energy by just turning your lights out for 5 minutes at night? I think that this should be established in the united states!
