More than two weeks into Navy Region Europe, Africa, Southwest Asia's (EURAFSWA) "Energy Biggest Loser" competition, Naval Air Station (NAS) Sigonella leads all other region installations in energy-use reduction. To date, NAS Sigonella has achieved a 10 percent reduction in energy-use. This year's competing region installations have reduced consumption 2.9 percent overall. Simple ways to save energy include switching off lights, turning off unused office equipment, closing doors and windows, and adjusting the thermostat temperature to 25°C (77°F) or higher during the summer months. The competition among the region's installations runs July 1-31. The biggest energy-loser will receive $70,000 to use toward base improvements.
