Philadelphia plans energy-efficiency renovations
According to the story,
Noresco will conduct an audit to determine what specific improvements will be made, and only investments that will pay for themselves within 15 years are being considered, the story stated.
Janet Milkman, executive director of the nonprofit Delaware Valley Green Building Council, said: "We''re very supportive of the administration''s focus on improving the city''s energy consumption first. It makes a lot of economic sense, and it''s just good practice for the city to implement some of these changes before requiring the private sector to do the same."
The city is also planning a marketing campaign to encourage city workers to adopt energy-saving measures, the story added.
