Implementation and Activities
The Energy Manager will review the historical usage and energy consumption to make recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners where improvements within the county may be made to increase energy savings.
The Energy Manager's report serves as Wagoner County's implementation plan upon approval by the Board of County Commissioners. We will use EECBG funds on-hand to provide capital for the energy efficiency strategies outlined in the energy audit.
Potential improvements that may be funded may include but are not limited to:
- Purchase and or install software and or equipment to collect and manage energy audit information including paperless data collection - scanner - presentation projector.
- Plaques, awards and publications that recognize those within the community who have made significant impacts in the area of energy efficiency or improved energy reducing technology.
- Replace lighting fixtures including existing exit signs with new LED.
- Replace HVAC systems.
In addition to reducing energy costs, these improvements will enhance occupant comfort and reduce maintenance costs.
EECBG funds for the Capital Improvement Energy Efficiency Retrofit Program will also be used to sustain and support the Wagoner County Energy Manager who is to promote, monitor and maintain the capital and operational energy conservation measures. The Energy Manager's position will expand to address other energy related initiatives as they develop by the Wagoner County Board of Commissioners.
Wagoner County is a member of multiple Council of Government's in the City of Tulsa and City of Muskogee area. The County may coordinate with them as part of the strategy. Our findings during the semi-annual energy audit may fold the advice and or the conclusions of others that the Board of County Commissioners feel are or would be of added benefit to Wagoner County.
The County will make inquiries at the State level regarding the energy audit and energy efficiency programs and will attend energy strategy meetings held within the State to improve our knowledge and approach synergy with our government partners.
Wagoner County is a member of INCOG and has a publically viewable website and will make the plan and energy audit report available for viewing online. The County will make inquiries regarding the energy audit conclusions of other and will attend energy strategy meetings held within the local community to improve our knowledge and approach synergy with our government partners.
