Let’s take a look at what some local KC CEP partners are already doing to make their commercial spaces more energy efficient:
MC Realty Group, which manages over 12 million square feet in Kansas City, Mo., has reduced its portfolio usage by 6,237,619 kilowatt hours over a five year period. It already utilizes the EPA Portfolio Manager and has extensive experience with KCPL’s commercial rebate program.
Hallmark has has cut waste by 54 percent, cut energy use by 20 percent, and cut water use by 18 percent since 2007.
From 2007 to 2011 Burns & McDonnell’s Kansas City headquarters underwent more than $2 million in improvements and upgrades. The headquarters now has Energy Star rating of 95 and has a LEED Silver certification for Existing Buildings.
All three of these companies are represented on the KC CEP Advisory Committee. They, and other experts on the committee, will share their experiences as the KC CEP moves forward.
