Montgomery County’s Green Government Report Confirms Sustainable Operations are Strong Across County Departments


Montgomery County’s Department of General Services (DGS) has published the fiscal year 2017 Montgomery County Green Government Report, which reports the County’s progress with energy efficiency, green buildings, smart growth, water conservation, biodiversity, waste reduction, green transportation, renewable resources, and resiliency.

A highlight of the report is that the County is now a carbon-neutral government through energy efficiency, renewable energy investment, and energy purchases. This puts the County on track to save $70 million over the next 20 years through energy efficiency improvements, negotiations with energy suppliers and solar energy generation on County facilities.

All County departments and agencies play a significant role in greening County government, with the DGS Office of Energy and Sustainability (OES) as the hub for these efforts. OES is managed by Eric Coffman who was named to the Energy Manager Today 75 list on May 1. The list, selected by the Editorial and Management team at Business Sector Media, recognizes the nation’s top 75 executives in energy management.
