In Mississippi, the State Energy Office used SEP funds to support several programs aimed at reducing energy consumption and costs in public buildings at the state and local levels. The State Energy Office partnered with the Mississippi Department of Finance and Administration to implement a "Lead by Example" program which to date has conducted 278 building audits. The audits’ findings estimate annual energy savings of 110,771,028 kilowatt-hours (kWh) made possible through energy efficiency measures.
