ENERGY STAR Challenge Participant Story

Phoenix, Arizona
Date Joined: October 26, 2005

Energy efficiency is a priority for the State of Arizona. Arizona Revised Statute 34-451 mandates a 10 percent reduction in energy use in state buildings by 2008, and by 15% by 2011. The Arizona Energy Office, within the Department of Commerce, is the agency that carries out this mandate and helps bring the environmental and financial benefits of energy efficiency to Arizona's school districts, government agencies, and institutes of higher education. To support EPA's ENERGY STAR Challenge, Arizona will:

  • Measure the energy efficiency of state buildings using EPA's national energy performance rating system;
  • Support agencies and educational institutions in improving the energy efficiency of their facilities; and
  • Recognize organizations that demonstrate energy efficiency improvements of 10 percent or more.
