On August 8th, 2017 the Town of Geddes Board authorized the adoption of the Municipal Building Energy Benchmarking Procedure. The energy benchmarking is a process of measuring a building’s energy use, tracking that use over time, and comparing performance to similar buildings, to promote public health, safety and welfare by making available good, actionable information on municipal building energy use to help identify opportunities to cut costs and reduce pollution in the Town.
In a recent study, EPA found that buildings that were benchmarked consistently reduced energy use by an average of 2.4 percent per year, for a total savings of 7 percent. And, buildings that started out as poor performers saved even more.
