Energy Manager Joins Our Team
Howard County welcomes Leah Miller as its first Energy Manager. The new position in the Office of Community Sustainability will develop and implement programs and policies to save energy, save money, and expand the use of clean energy, both within our government facilities as well as throughout the community.
Smart energy management means saving money, reducing pollution, creating new jobs, and making our community more resilient and resistant to power outages.
The creation of the Energy Manager position was one of the key recommendations of the Energy Task Force appointed by Howard County Executive Alan H. Kittleman in 2016. Having a staff person in place is an important first step that allows for further implementation of the task force’s suggestions to increase energy efficiency, sustainability and cost savings.
In addition to managing energy consumption and increasing the use of renewable energy sources for Howard County’s nearly 200 buildings, Miller will work with County residents, businesses, and organizations to save energy and make our community even more sustainable.
