State Buildings Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act

The State Buildings Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act stipulates that all state agencies shall reduce their energy consumption by 5% by 2009 and 10% by 2010. The Department of General Services (DGS), in cooperation with MEA, are to set forth energy performance indices for each agency. Each State agency is to conduct an analysis of each building under its jurisdiction to determine gas and electric usage and the cost of this consumption. It also states that all state agencies will submit to MEA an Energy Conservation Plan, by July 1, 2008, to include Energy Conservation Measures (ECM) to achieve the reduction goals. ECMs cited in the bill include energy performance contracting, energy efficient lighting retrofits, water conservation devices, weatherization, efficient heating and cooling devices, and employee training.
