Energy use by building


The Medfield Energy Committee is working on crafting a plan to reduce town energy consumption by 20%, in order to qualify as a Green Community (and thereby pick up our $148,000 state DOER grant monies).  As part of that process, the MEC is gathering the data on what buildings and uses use what amounts of energy, and also asking departments for recommendations on how to their reduce usage.

The MEC reports the following current existing energy use by building or use:

    Where is the energy use by the Town Garage?


  2. Shawn Collins

    Didn’t see Town Garage listed. Is that information available?

    Shawn, I am not sure why the Garage is not listed. I know from past discussions that its natural gas usage the first year was unusually high and then went down substantially the next year.
