 WHY:                   

Energy can account for as much as 10% of a town’s annual operating budget. Local governments can save money by improving energy efficiency in existing buildings and designing new building to be energy efficient. Investing in energy conservation measures in taxpayer-funded facilities serve to reassure constituents that tax dollars are being spent wisely while showcasing energy-efficient technologies.
