RENO, Nev. -- The City of Reno held the 'Energy Efficient Day' a third time to recognize the benefits of energy efficiency on October 5.
Energy Efficient Day included the Reno City Council, a national network of municipalities, government agencies, utilities, companies and clean energy advocates.
The Energy Efficient Day Proclamation highlights economic and environmental benefits of energy efficiency for residents and businesses.
The City of Reno has improved the energy efficiency of its own facilities over the years through cost-effective retrofits that have lowered the operating cost of its buildings.
The city also has the ReEnergize Reno building challenge, which is a program that is to improve the efficiency of commercial, industrial and multifamily buildings 20 percent by 2025. The program will help to cut energy and water waste in large buildings and reduce climate pollution.
Reno's leadership on the issue was praised by the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP), a public-interest organization promoting greater energy efficiency and clean transportation in Nevada and five other neighboring states.
