Summary

In April 2008, Governor Sonny Perdue signed an executive order requiring state government agencies and departments to reduce energy use. This executive order created the Governor's Energy Challenge 2020 as part of "Conserve Georgia." State agencies and departments must reduce energy consumption 15% by 2020, using 2007 energy use as a baseline. Reductions in energy use must come from energy efficiency measures and can also come from renewable energy development.

Funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) is being used by the Georgia Environmental Finance Authority (GEFA) to fund state agency retrofit projects. These projects will help state government entities meet the goal set by the Governor's Energy Challenge. GEFA is in charge of implementing this program. The challenge is mandatory for state entities, but local governments, schools, businesses, and individuals are also encouraged to participate. An interactive tool is available on the Challenge website that helps building owners find energy efficiency options.
