RePower Kitsap

 


 
Kitsap County is working to reduce energy use and save taxpayer dollars as part of a cohesive effort to reduce energy consumption, improve energy efficiency and raise awareness about energy conservation.

The Board of County Commissioners adopted an Energy Efficiency & Conservation Plan (Energy Plan) in October 2011 to meet the following goals for County facilities and operations:

  • Reduce energy use 30% by 2020 compared to 2009
  • Generate 10% of energy from renewable sources by 2020 compared to 2009
Kitsap County has reduced energy use by 11% through 2012, generating over $373,000 in savings from energy efficiency and conservation efforts since 2009. Check out the 2012 Energy Wi$e Annual Report for a full summary of Kitsap County's progress meeting our energy conservation and renewable energy goals.
 
REPOWER KITSAP

Kitsap County has partnered with Washington State University, Kitsap Credit Union and other key partners to launch RePower Kitsap -- a county-wide program dedicated to helping you save money through energy efficiency, increasing the comfort, health and safety of your home, and creating local jobs. RePower Kitsap provides in-home energy assessments, energy-efficiency financing and incentives, and a local, skilled workforce to make achieving these goals easier and more affordable.

RESOURCE CONSERVATION MANAGER PROGRAM

Kitsap County has participated in Puget Sound Energy’s Resource Conservation Manager (RCM) Program since December 2010. The RCM program targets no-cost and low-cost conservation actions for operations and maintenance, and employee behavior change. More than 80 County buildings have received energy audits and detailed Facility Action Plans that identify no-cost, low-cost, and longer term capital investment opportunities for both increased energy and water savings. The County’s Resource Conservation Manager is working with all departments to implement recommendations in the Facility Action Plans and continually address no-cost conservation actions.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY & CONSERVATION BLOCK GRANT

Kitsap County received $2.229 million in Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) funds from the U.S. Department of Energy in 2009 to reduce energy demand, save taxpayer dollars used for County operations, lower home utility bills, promote a green economy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. EECBG funds were used from December 2009 to December 2012 to fund energy upgrades in County buildings, develop a residential weatherization and energy efficiency loan program, reduce energy use and emissions in the Kitsap food chain, and implement the County's Energy Plan.
