How much energy did Utah save by implementing their 4 day work week?

    Utah’s plan to close state offices on Fridays in 2009, has resulted in a 13% reduction in energy use. The program began in August 2008 and there was a major switch so about 17,000 of the state’s 24,000 executive branch employees stated to work 10 hours a day (instead of 8), four days a week (instead of 5). This meant one less day every week with everyone in the offices. They predicted that not working on Fridays would save the state $3 million in 2009 and would save workers $5-6 million on commuting.
