Canon U.S.A. saved $300,000 in utility bills over a two-year period by focusing on the energy used in offices for lighting, computers and printing.

Efficiency and conservation measures at five key sites from 2009 through 2010 saved 2.7 gigawatt-hours (2.7 million kilowatt-hours) of energy — enough that it could have been used to power Canon U.S.A. corporate headquarters in Lake Success, N.Y., for four months, the company said in a statement about the results.

Canon took a hard look at energy use and practices at its headquarters and regional offices in Irvine, Calif., Itasca, Ill., Jamesburg, N.J., and Irving, Texas, to determine what areas to tackle.
