The U.S. Department of Energy today recognized the cities of Beaverton and Hillsboro, and Portland Public Schools (PPS), for their leadership in reducing energy use, and for showcasing their innovations and successful strategies for other state and local government leaders to follow. These Better Buildings Challenge Partners combined have committed to reduce the energy use of ten million square feet of building space, including libraries, schools and other public facilities, by 20 percent over the next decade. At the Beaverton City Library, where these Partners were recognized, the city expects annual savings greater than $20,000.
