Energy Use in State of Wisconsin Owned Facilities
Wisconsinís efforts to reduce energy consumption and costs in state-owned facilities began in earnest as a result of the rapid energy cost increases following the first Middle East oil embargo in 1973. Energy conservation and energy management efforts in state facilities have received continued support from the Governor, the State Building Commission, and the Wisconsin Legislature over the ensuing years. As testimony to the great facility managers and this support, the rate of annual energy use in state facilities has been reduced 32 percent since 1973.
The reports linked below will refer to Fiscal Year 2005 (FY2005 or FY05) as a baseline comparison year (which is also adjusted for weather) to reflect the impact of the bipartisan 2005 Wisconsin Act 141 and the Energy Bond Fund Program (administered by the Department of Administration) on energy conservation efforts across the eleven major state agencies. The FY2015 rate of annual energy use in state facilities was 18.9 percent less than FY2005 baseline when adjusted for weather.
