Lynchburg Chamber Sponsors Seminar on Energy Efficiency

Lynchburg, VA - A lot of talk on Candlers Mountain Wednesday about how to save money by using energy more efficiently.

The Lynchburg Regional Chamber sponsored a seminar, held at the Wingate by Wyndham Hotel, which is known for its "green" efforts. Panelists from the Central Virginia Industries Council shared ideas, including using L.E.D. lighting and how to prevent air leaks at your office. Those leaks can cost a lot, making it harder to heat and cool a building.

"Know what you are spending on energy, know how you are spending it, come up with some idea that you can catalog against each other. You want to go for the ones that'll give you the most bang for your buck, " said David Nardi of Wiley Wilson.

And the Industries Council said Wednesday that Sheetz saved a lot of money recently by using better lights in their stores.
