ENERGY STAR Challenge Participant Story

Story County, Iowa Board of Supervisors
Nevada, Iowa
Date Joined: April 30, 2007

Story County has been at the forefront in advancing the principles of partnership and sustainable community design. By taking a chance when few others were doing so and building and redesigning its county facilities to maximize energy efficiency, Story County has bolstered its economy and exemplified responsible environmental stewardship and while providing top notch services to its citizens. By holding public board meetings, printing press releases, and offering tours and open houses, Story County is providing the public with an opportunity to see up close how their county is implementing this practice. To encourage participation throughout the county, public officials often show power point presentations and hold informational meetings to various public entities, community organizations, service clubs, and businesses. In order to maximize our energy efficiency, Story County, which has several ENERGY STAR designated buildings, uses several EPA resources, including the portfolio manager and other energy management tools.
