The State of Maine is committed to the goals of the ENERGY STAR Challenge. To support EPA's
ENERGY STAR Challenge, Maine will:
- Encourage building owners and operators throughout the State to improve their energy efficiency by 10 percent or more;
- Measure and track energy use and greenhouse gas emissions from state government buildings;
- Identify the best opportunities for improving the efficiency of State buildings; and
- Use performance contracting and other mechanisms to make improvements.
In addition, Maine is designing all new state buildings and publicly funded schools to be as energy efficient as possible.
