Number of state departments improving energy efficiency in state buildings

$2.1 million

In energy cost savings from corrections center (one of many projects)


In West Virginia, the State Energy Office has several SEP-funded initiatives that emphasize improving energy efficiency in public buildings as a way to reduce energy costs to taxpayers. The initiatives focus on nine departments within state government including Corrections, Higher Education, K-12, National Guard, Health and Human Resources, Environmental Protection, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Administration. For example, a $2.1 million project will reduce annual operating costs for West Virginia’s most expensive-to-operate facility, a corrections center, by more than $400,000 per year. The project will pay for itself within five years.
