A program to reduce energy and water consumption in Des Moines’ largest buildings was outlined today to the Des Moines City Council.
Called Energize Des Moines, the voluntary program targets occupied commercial, multifamily, hospitality, industrial and institutional buildings of at least 25,000 square feet. The goal is to reduce energy and water consumption by 10 percent by 2020. Of immediate focus are buildings located downtown; however, owners of any structures that fit the criteria can participate.
