Efficiency Measures Save Seattle $1.25 Million

June 20, 2013

The City of Seattle has saved $1.25 million since 2008 thanks to energy conservation measures.

According to an official report, energy conservation measures at city facilities have saved the City of Seattle $1.25 million since 2008. The city has a history of monitoring and improving the energy efficiency of its facilities.

The report covers 6.2 million square feet of city-owned and operated building space. It found that city-owned downtown buildings are more energy efficient than the national average. In fact the Seattle Municipal Tower has an EPA Energy Star Score of 93 out of 100, compared to a national average of 50.

"Regularly monitoring and quick action to address in energy use helps the City keep the building performing at the top of its class." Especially with more than 3,000 occupants who work at the 62-story high rise.

Hoping to maintain the momentum, the City of Seattle is currently developing a comprehensive Resource Conservation Management Plan that will outline strategies to improve the city's building portfolio by 20 percent by 2020.
