NCBPA, members and partners believe that North Carolina should raise the bar on energy and water savings goals for state-owned buildings. At last week’s Lobby Days, we spoke with legislators about the $1.3B in utility savings that state and local governments have benefited from since 2003 and how increasing the state’s goal from 30% to 40% would continue this valuable work.
