Energy Conservation

Goal: Reduce energy use by 15%


  • Work with staff and building occupants to implement energy saving measures.
  • Partner with other agencies and utilities to optimize energy funding opportunities.
  • Develop strategic facility action plans to budget, manage and track conservation opportunities.
  • Explore new opportunities for cost-effective renewable energy projects.

Pierce County is up for the challenge

In 2010, Pierce County became an ENERGY STAR partner, which was a declaration of our commitment to reducing energy consumption. Through this partnership we have pledged to consistently benchmark our energy performance, implement a plan or policy to reduce energy use, and educate Pierce County staff about energy conservation.

Pierce County has also signed on to the International Facilities Management Association’s (IFMA) Energy Challenge, which is a national call-to-action for a reduction in energy use of 15%. To further support energy reduction Pierce County has also taken the Northwest Plug Load Pledge that demonstrates their commitment to procuring energy efficient products and reducing negative environmental impact.
