The energy toolkit is designed as a resource for home and business owners as well as city staff and officials that are interested in saving energy.
Cities and counties have huge potential to cut costs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create local jobs. Get ideas for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, and see case studies of energy savings projects at other local governments.
If you own a home or business, there are many ways to reduce your monthly energy bill and invest in cleaner, greener energy. See what energy efficiency and renewable energy options are out there, and learn about tax rebates and financing options to help you upgrade your home.
From residential rooftop solar panels to municipal purchasing guidelines to local PACE legislation, there are many ways that energy policies can help cities. This list has sample legislation and policy ideas from a variety of sources.
Simple behavior changes are often the easiest and least expensive way to save energy. See resources for employee training and citizen education programs that can institutionalize energy saving practices.
