Local Governments

Lead by example. Reduce your environmental impact.

Take the steps to conserve energy and improve the environment and your budget.

Small steps go a long way

Nearly one-third of the energy used to run typical government buildings can be conserved. Reducing energy consumption allows you to spend money on other critical things in your community.

Improve your fleet

Switching to vehicles that use biofuel or are more fuel-efficient can save you money. Alternative fuel vehicles improve the environment by reducing vehicle emissions, while lessening the dependence on imported petroleum.

Managing Responsible Clean Energy Development

Integrating clean energy in your municipality reduces greenhouse gases and encourages a sustainable community. However, it can be challenging to navigate the codes and permit process for solar and energy storage installations. Make the process easier for your staff and residents by using our Guidebooks on solar and energy storage to streamline permitting and accelerate clean energy development.
