Montgomery County officials are staking steps to cut their energy consumption. Commissioner Chairman, Josh Shapiro says, they’re looking to cut it in half.
“Making our buildings much more energy efficient, looking at ways to use our power more economically and carefully. In doing so, you have the short term dollar savings, but then you’ve got the long term positive impact on your budget and on the environment.”
Shaprio says, a 50 percent reduction in energy consumption will save taxpayers more than a million dollars.
