Green Cincinnati and it's Energy Efficiency Drive

Jan 20, 2023

The Cincinnati project includes plans for rooftop solar panels for nine city buildings including fleet garages, fire stations, recreation centers and public administration buildings.

The Cincinnati Council has recently pledged to devote $10 million to green energy transition and the retrofitting of 94 municipal buildings to operate with greater energy efficiency. 


This news comes in conjunction with a major emphasis on energy conservation in the United States. The US Department of Energy(DOE) laid down two new rules for light bulbs. These rules are part of 100 energy efficiency actions the Biden Administration is completing this year, which together will save families $100 every year. “By raising energy efficiency standards, we’re putting $3 billion back in the pockets of American consumers every year and substantially reducing domestic carbon emissions,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm.


The Cincinnati project also includes plans for rooftop solar panels for nine city buildings including fleet garages, fire stations, recreation centers, and public administration buildings. 

The 2018 Green Cincinnati Plan sets out a goal to reach 100% renewable energy in city buildings by 2035, and to reduce carbon emissions by 80% by 2050. City administration is going the extra mile by implementing a decision to purchase only electric vehicles for their transport needs. 


The greenest energy is the energy we do not use. Becoming more energy efficient – achieved through such basic investments as double-pane windows, modern thermostats, building insulation, and proven power-saving devices such as FORCE allows us to make better use of the existing energy.


From a social perspective, energy efficiency will bring significant economic and social benefits, as deep building renovations carry the promise of many new skilled jobs and the stimulation of economic activity in the cities of Cincinnati and elsewhere, as well as overall energy security in the United States. ENPOSS believes that energy efficiency thus becomes a multi-pronged tool for a more sustainable and secure world.
