The Mission of the Air Force Energy Program is to provide global energy management across the Air Force. The Air Force Energy page is designed to provide Air Force personnel and the public with an interactive forum for obtaining information about the Air Force's energy management efforts. By becoming a fan, you will have access to the most recent reports, new stories, photos, videos, and events relevant to the USAF's Energy Program. While this is an open forum, there are some posting guidelines that will be enforced, and if you don't comply, your message will be removed. Posting guidelines are as follows: -We do not allow graphic, obscene, explicit or racial comments or submissions nor do we allow comments that are abusive, hateful or intended to defame anyone or any organization. -We do not allow solicitations or advertisements.
