The Department of Motor Vehicles Headquarters based in Sacramento has saved money and energy and boosted the building’s energy efficiency by 30-50%. Energy savings resulted from measures undertaken including double-glazed windows for better insulation, improved heating and cooling systems, a smart “building energy management system,” and installation of LED lighting and daylight harvesting. The DMV has combined renewables with its energy efficiency efforts, installing 500 kilowatts (kW) of solar on the building’s roof. Learn more on the project, and the value of smart building systems, through this GovTech.com article.
