The Energy Management Program (EMP) was created by Commissioners Court in early 2004 to reduce the county's overall energy consumption and cost.
The goal of the EMP is to maximize available energy-efficient conservation technologies while utilizing sustainable materials and approaches in design, construction and operations. The EMP also aims to ensure compliance with the Energy Conservation and Recycling Policy approved and adopted by the Bexar County Commissioners Court on October 23, 2007. To date, the EMP has saved Bexar County over $2 million dollars in energy savings.
The Energy Manager serves as a point of contact for all energy related activities throughout the county.
The Energy Management Program provides the following services:
Promote Bexar County's energy management program with employees and staff
Implement various energy reduction projects on new and existing facilities
Develop and implement long term energy strategies in order to reduce energy consumption
Monitor building systems to follow the impact of equipment and insure its effectiveness
Act as a liaison between Bexar County and our utility supply companies
Collect, analyze, and report energy data to educate and inform the county about energy management
