Cities and Counties

Cities, counties, and municipalities are increasingly focused on ways to become more responsible stewards of natural resources, including through effective management of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), as well as cooperation with local businesses, and management of buildings, structures, and facilities.

Organizations such as the American Council for an Energy-Efficiency Economy (ACEEE) annually rank U.S. cities based on their energy-efficiency efforts, leading to broad exposure of cities’ environmental and economic development strength. Energy-efficiency is recognized as an integral element of utility investment and operations, and energy-efficiency programs are expanding rapidly in an effort to reduce GHG, save money, and generate jobs.
