Government Energy Efficiency

A pilot project to test per­for­mance con­tract­ing on seven County build­ings with the high­est energy con­sump­tion reduced energy used by those build­ings by over 20%. The project saved so much energy that the County has added all other build­ings to the con­tract, fos­ter­ing max­i­mum energy effi­ciency in all County facilities.

The County installed sub-meters in 40 build­ings to ana­lyze energy usage and inform appro­pri­ate adjust­ments to equipment.

A track­ing sys­tem for util­i­ties in all County facil­i­ties helps the County ver­ify energy sav­ings and save addi­tional rev­enue by find­ing billing errors.

The County’s Energy Dash­board presents daily updates on energy used in our most energy inten­sive build­ings in easy to under­stand graphs.
