Procurement of Efficient Products
Each year, state, local, and tribal governments use large quantities of energy consuming products and appliances. Some estimates place the energy bills of all federal, state, and local government agencies at more than $12 billion, and every year, these agencies purchase more than $50 billion of products that will consume energy for years.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) provides guidance and other resources to assist these agencies in purchasing energy efficient products, including the best practices, project resources, and tools available here.
