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.
