http://www.energy.idaho.gov/The Idaho Governor’s Office of Energy Resources (OER) is accepting applications from rural cities and counties that want to save energy in existing public buildings. Approved applicants will receive a building energy audit which will identify energy saving opportunities, and may qualify for some cost-share funding on energy efficient retrofits. A list of Idaho cities and counties that are eligible to apply is located on the OER’s website.
The University of Idaho Integrated Design Lab is assisting the OER in identifying energy saving opportunities in approved city and county-owned buildings. The Integrated Design Lab is dedicated to the development of high performance energy efficient buildings in the Intermountain West through research, education, and outreach efforts.
Eligible cities and counties will fill out an application and the OER will evaluate submissions for program eligibility. Once approved, the applicant will benchmark the approved building in Portfolio Manager (with assistance from the OER) and will receive a building audit from the University of Idaho Integrated Design Lab.
