In 1998, then Governor Benjamin Nelson issued an executive order that all state agencies are to support the use and development of renewable energy to the greatest extent possible wherever cost-effective, available, and practical. Agencies are directed to look for renewables opportunities for new and existing buildings and are encouraged to purchase electricity generated using renewable energy resources. Life-cycle cost analysis of the potential improvements must be used. On the transportation side, by 2010, 50 percent of the Transportation Services Bureau fleet will be comprised of renewable fueled vehicles; and by 2025, 100 percent. Beyond renewables, the order calls for agencies to look for opportunities to utilize water conservation techniques.
