D.O.E. Against Its Own Bright Technology?

Is it surprising that the Department of  Energy doesn’t even use its own energy-saving lightbulbs in its offices?

I find it rather absurd that this department would stockpile incandescent lightbulbs and not use the more economical and energy-efficient CFL bulbs like so many Americans are using in their homes and workspaces. The D.O.E. is the one that suggested we switch in the first place to cut down on our energy consumption.
