Number of state departments improving energy efficiency in state buildings
In energy efficiency retrofits at one corrections center
In energy cost savings from corrections center (one of many projects)
In West Virginia, the State Energy Office has several SEP-funded initiatives that emphasize improving energy efficiency in public buildings as a way to reduce energy costs to taxpayers. The initiatives focus on nine departments within state government including Corrections, Higher Education, K-12, National Guard, Health and Human Resources, Environmental Protection, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Administration. For example, a $2.1 million project will reduce annual operating costs for West Virginia’s most expensive-to-operate facility, a corrections center, by more than $400,000 per year. The project will pay for itself within five years.
