DuPage County Energy Conservation & Air Quality Improvement Plan
In 2012, DuPage County approved the Cool Counties Initiative as a way of accepting new environmental challenges. The Cool Counties plan set goals of reducing greenhouse gases from 2007 levels by 10 percent by the year 2020 and by 20 percent by 2030. To move these goals forward, the County brought together the DuPage Green Government Council (GGC). An entity comprised of utility and energy efficiency experts and community members to draft this plan of action. This project will continue to put the County at the forefront of saving energy through the continued pursuit of newer technologies.
How are we doing? The County obtained usage information which has been aggregated and converted to GHG emissions The attached data shows an 8% reduction of GHG utilizing a 2012 baseline.
