    The Navy is already making efforts to become more energy efficient.  Already, many outfits and ships around the country have been retrofitted with things like greener light bulbs, high-efficiency boilers, and photovoltaics.  They have also instituted programs for educating Navy Personnel on energy efficiency and energy management, as well as upgraded many old machines to energy-saving models.  The Navy calculates that already they are avoiding $400 million in energy costs compared to their use in 1985.  We can expect more upgrades and improvements in the coming years.
