Facilities Energy Audit Status

Introduction

The following summarizes the findings of an energy efficiency study conducted in 2002 for the City of Burlingame under the California Energy Commission's Energy Partnership Program. This study reviews the City's major energy using systems (these facilities are listed below). After review of the historical energy use, potential projects were determined and analyzed based on cost effectiveness.

This program provides technical assistance through energy audits, analyses, and low interest loans to California City and County governments in order to identify, install, and finance energy efficiency projects. The goal of the program is to reduce energy costs through the implementation of energy reduction measures in existing systems.
