Our office participated in an Energy Efficiency Evaluation through the Idaho Small Business Development Center on 11-16-09. Their report was received on 1-19-10, and we plan to implement their recommendations.

Accomplishments to Date:
Energy efficient lightbulbs have been installed throughout our office. Computers are logged off at night and shut down on the weekends. Our copy machine shuts down when not in use.

Water Goals:
More study is needed regarding our water use. In 2009 86,000 gallons of water was used--more water is used in the summer because of sprinklers. Look into installing low volume water adaptors for bathroom and kitchen sinks and toilets and possibly doing some drought tolerant landscaping.
