Do you have energy efficiency projects that have been postponed or rejected due to capital budget limitations, other projects with better returns, or lack of expertise? Yet, from your perspective the project should be a “no brainer” due to the immediate positive cash flows generated by the energy savings. Understanding your organization’s decision-making process, being able to effectively speak to the benefit of improved cash flow, and improving your financial literacy can greatly increase your probability of receiving approval for a project.
Use this case study to learn about the work Kentucky has done in partnership with ENERGY STAR over the last several years to improve the energy efficiency of its K-12 buildings. State and local governments and K-12 school districts can use these approaches and best practices to drive savings in their buildings and enhance their ability to invest in student educational success.
