Lee Post has been turning off lights since she was old enough to reach the switches. It was a childhood habit. Now she hopes to make sure the lights and heat won't have to be turned down by the 100,000 residents of Boise, Idaho, where for the last four months Lee, 28, has occupied the city's federally funded Energy Office. One solution she is actively promoting is geothermal heating from boiling underground water. Lee points out that some 170 homes in Boise are being heated from a hot water spring first tapped in the 1890s. The search for more springs is under way and, if found, they will be used to heat the new Boise city hall and a state office building. After two years of premed at Boise State College, Lee dropped out for financial reasons and eventually became an executive secretary at the Idaho Office on Energy. A month later the fuel shortage hit and she was in charge of allocation, juggling the demands of farmers and truckers. "Energy is going to be the field for the next 100 years," predicts Lee, who wants to move on to another energy-related job when her one-year grant expires.
