Mackinaw Lights Dimming
(2008-06-11)
(wgvu) - ST. IGNACE, Mich. (AP) - Operators of the Mackinac Bridge say
they'll reduce energy costs by 11 percent a year under a new
conservation plan.
The Mackinac Bridge Authority says it will power down computers
at night and on weekends. Also, decorative lights will be turned
off at 1 a.m. and wattage will be reduced at the St. Ignace toll
plaza.
Other efficiency measures will be studied as well.
Officials say the cutbacks will save about $13,000 a year.
Board Chairman William Gnodtke says bridge operators want to
save energy and money wherever possible.
