Energy costs for state-owned facilities have been identified as an area where cost savings can be made. As a means to lessen energy expenses, the state is committed to finding ways to increase the energy efficiency of these buildings. The Construction Management Division of the Wyoming Department of Administration and Information, which is charged with remodeling and new construction of state buildings, incorporates energy efficiency measures that would qualify as best-in-class practices. The State Energy Office conducts outreach promoting the Wyoming Energy Conservation Improvement Program to state, county and municipal agencies as a way to identify cost savings through energy efficiency upgrades. The State Energy Office works with any agency requesting an energy audit and provides project support during all phases of an energy conservation retrofit project. The upcoming renovation of the Capitol building and Herschler building in Cheyenne is an opportunity to determine ways to save energy cost in the state’s most iconic structures. Energy conservation measures such as replacing old boilers, installing more efficient lighting and other considerations will be analyzed during pre-construction activities.
