Energy Standards for State Buildings

July 18, 2023


In May 2013, Oklahoma enacted H.B. 1990, repealing the high-performance building certification program.

The State is still required by statute to adopt planning and construction standards for state buildings that conserve energy and optimize the energy performance of new buildings. The standards must reduce dependence on imported sources of energy through energy efficiency and local and renewable energy sources.

The standards must also authorize the Office of Management and Enterprise Services to pursue ENERGY STAR designation to demonstrate energy efficiency in public buildings.
