ENERGY STAR Challenge Participant Story

The State of Kansas and its State Energy Office are committed to the goals of the ENERGY STAR Challenge. In April 2004, House Bill 2603 enabled the use of energy performance contracting by state, municipal, county, and school agencies. The State then designed the Facility Conservation Improvement Program to help these agencies easily use energy saving performance contracting. To support EPA's ENERGY STAR Challenge, Kansas will:

  • Train schools and governments to use ENERGY STAR tools to help them measure their energy use and identify buildings that offer the greatest opportunity for improvement;
  • Recognize organizations in Kansas that achieve energy efficiency improvements of 10 percent or more; and
  • Highlight EPA's ENERGY STAR Challenge in the state's public awareness outreach efforts.
