Infrastructure and Land Use Committee 11/15/2012 1D2 Presented
REPORT: An Office of Sustainability Departmental Representative thanked the Chair for allowing the Office of Sustainability to recognize the work of the staff. She said that in 2009, the County received a grant from the Department of Energy and staff from the Office of Sustainability and other departments worked very hard on 13 projects that have saved the County energy and money and made a real difference to the community. She listed the projects, including the Commercial Rebate program, Alternative Energies, Reducing Energies, and the Office of Sustainability’s Power it Down program, a six-week outreach program. She said it was a great team effort that included competitions between the courts and the clerks and between the floors. She noted this program demonstrated that staff could make a difference in that energy use decreased significantly in the six-week period. She noted staff members in the Finance Department on the 26th floor were the winners over the six-week period, followed by staff in the Internal Services Risk Management Department. She presented prizes and indicated that the campaign would continue. She provided a website for those who were interested in keeping up with the campaign’s progress.
