RESOLUTION NO. 120414

 

 

Honoring and recognizing the City of Kansas City Missouri’s Facility Management team on City Hall being designated an ENERGY STAR Certified Building.

 

WHEREAS, City Hall building has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR certification with this honor being given to buildings that perform in the 75th percentile nationwide for energy efficiency and meet strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA; and

 

WHEREAS, City Hall received an energy efficiency score in the 92nd percentile, an impressive feat considering City Hall, located at 414 E. 12th St., was built 75 years ago; and

 

WHEREAS, commercial buildings that earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification use an average of 35 percent less energy than typical buildings and also release 35 percent less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere; and

 

WHEREAS, the City has improved its energy performance by managing energy strategically in not only City Hall, but at several City facilities and last year, the City’s General Services Department completed an 18-month Energy Conservation Project that made sustainable changes and upgrades to City facilities that conserved energy, improved operations and saved money with City Hall’s energy consumption being reduced by 14 percent, or approximately $135,600.00 per year; and

 

WHEREAS, the EPA’s ENERGY STAR energy performance scale helps organizations assess how efficiently their buildings use energy relative to similar buildings nationwide and a building that scores a 75 or higher on EPA’s 1-100 scale may be eligible for ENERGY STAR certification; and

 

WHEREAS, ENERGY STAR was introduced by the EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency and today the ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than 60 different kinds of products as well as new homes and commercial and industrial buildings that meet strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the EPA; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby extend their most sincere appreciation and congratulations to the facility management team of City of Kansas City Missouri for their work, this certification further demonstrates the City’s commitment to environmental stewardship while also lowering our energy costs; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof, and that a copy hereof be presented to the City of Kansas City Missouri’s Facility Management team with the appreciation of the Mayor and Council for all the hard work and the noteworthy achievement of City Hall being awarded the EPA ENERGY STAR certification.
