Everyone who lives in parts of the country that actually experience winter is familiar with the joys of paying the heating bill in those cold weather months. If it's no fun paying the utility bills for your house, imagine what it's like trying to heat a one-million sq.ft. factory. In an effort to cut utility costs, GM
is asking their employees to do all the same things that people to at home such as turning off lights and computers, report and fix leaky windows and turn the thermostat down a notch. GM's North American operations include over sixty factories and and they use 70 gigawatt hours of energy annually.
