If you do this action, you could earn another 4 points [add to points]

Instead of turning on the lights in a room or area, try turning on a nearby lamp, or a light that shines only on the area you need illuminated. Think of it as wasteful when you are lighting an area that you aren't using. For example, if you're simply reading, then opt for just your reading lamp and turn off the overhead light. Perhaps you're working on the computer in your cubicle, and if no one else is around, turn off the overhead lights, and turn on a desk lamp.
