We have skylights and windows near every place where people work or study. The use of this natural lighting reduces the electricity we use for "artificial" lights. Wherever possible, we've added timers and motion sensors to turn off lights, too, in case we forget to turn them off when we're done. Finally, we use the latest type of fluorescent lights (called C-5) that use less electricity than traditional lights. This is an example of REDUCE - the most important of the 3Rs. (We're not giving up anything, just being more thoughtful about how we use it.)
