Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 1, 2009
The Oregon Department of Administrative Services has selected LPB Energy Management (LPB) to process utility bills and report on energy costs and consumption for its 43 facilities, state officials announced today.
"The state's contract with LPB represents a major step forward in Oregon's efforts to promote sustainability and save energy in state government buildings," said Scott Harra, Director of the Oregon Department of Administrative Services (DAS). "We understand the benefits of tracking and reporting our energy usage in state government," Harra added. "By contracting with LPB to process our energy bills, we free up time and resources to find new and better ways to save energy and taxpayers' dollars. This is what sustainability is all about."
Under the terms of the contract, utility bills will go to LPB's Service Bureau for processing. DAS will be able to benchmark facilities, compare costs and consumption against prior periods, track each building's carbon footprint and provide each facility with access to its own customized reports through LPB's web-based Utility Manager™ Online software. Offering DAS facility managers access to utility reporting will enable them to see the benefits of their efficiency efforts immediately.
"It is an honor to welcome Oregon's Department of Administrative Services as an LPB client," said Matthew Berke, founder and president of LPB. "The State of Oregon is widely respected for its leadership role in energy conservation and we are excited about the opportunity to help them reduce utility costs and consumption, increase operational efficiencies and contribute to environmental sustainability."
