CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Bank of America Corp. on Monday announced that its California offices are taking some steps to combat the state’s ongoing energy crisis.

The Charlotte company has turned off the signs at several locations in San Francisco, including the bank’s Clock Tower building near the Bay Bridge and the Bank of America building at Van Ness and Market streets.

The bank is also asking employees to turn off computer monitors, printers, and photocopiers after working hours, as well as to switch off lights in conference rooms when they are not in use.

Separately, Bank of America is reportedly moving over 200 jobs to Witchita, Kan., as it transfers its retirement and investment services deposit division from Atlanta to that city.

Most of the jobs are accounting and clerical positions, the company told the Witchita Business Journal. The Witchita office, which services Bank of America's retirement account and certificate of deposit customers in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma, will add Florida and Texas to its service territory with the transfer.
