Ada County has partnered with local service providers and private business operators within the community since 1999 to guide the County's energy and resource use. The Partnership meets annually to update the annual strategic plan and a five-year action plan by discussing effectiveness, noting achievements, and setting new goals for the next fiscal year.
The County believes that actions outined in the energy plan are wise investments that will benefit all the citizens of Ada County. The goal of this program is to maintain dynamic plans for identifying cost-effective and economically sustainable energy and resource efficiency priorities for all Ada County facilities. These priorities should meet the needs of County citizens, County Commissioners, Elected Officials, management, maintenance staff, and building occupants.
Management and staff work together to accurately measure energy efficiency and develop a phased approach for efficiency implementation. Ada County demonstrates to employees and the community that public buildings are operated in a cost-effective manner, to save resources and maximize tax dollars.
