DOE Sends Energy Saving Team to Federal Courthouse in Alabama

December 12, 2005

A federal Energy Saving Team was deployed to the Frank M. Johnson, Jr. Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in Montgomery, Alabama, on December 12th to identify opportunities to save energy and money. The visit is part of DOE's "Easy Ways to Save Energy" campaign, which in the coming months will send Energy Saving Teams to the 30 largest federal facilities and the top 200 energy-intensive manufacturing facilities in the United States. See the DOE press release.

The Frank M. Johnson, Jr. Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse is home to the federal bench in Montgomery. It is named for Frank M. Johnson, Jr., a federal judge who served in the courthouse starting in 1955 and made many rulings that advanced the cause of civil rights in Alabama. The building is now on the National Register of Historic Places. A major addition to the building was dedicated in 2002. See the National Park Service Web site.
