Orion Energy Systems recently launched a blog on its Web site. The company invites visitors for discussions on energy and the environment. Its blog will offer a unique perspective on the energy industry, the environment, and the role of energy efficiency as a way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide the cost savings and green-collar jobs many believe will be important to the nation's economic recovery.

As leaders in the energy-efficiency industry, the company's executives will address issues like government policy, the difference between carbon tax and cap and trade, the challenges utilities face to meet renewable electricity standards, permanent distributed load reduction, how NIMBYism affects decision-makers, and how lighting can influence human health.
