In 2012 S.B. 1096 established the Oklahoma State Facilities Energy Conservation Program. The program directs all state agencies and higher education institutions to achieve cumulative energy savings of at least 20 percent by the year 2020 when compared to fiscal year 2012 utility expenditures. The express purpose of the targeted energy savings is to capitalize on opportunities for organizational behavior-based or performance-based energy conservation efforts and existing equipment and building optimization while maintaining or improving the operational environment during times when facilities are occupied. Another program object is to obtain ENERGY STAR recognition for facilities that comply with the necessary requirements.
Upon implementation, all agencies are required to input historical utility costs into approved software on a monthly basis and deliver an annual report on the progress and cost savings of the Program to the Director within 90 days after the end of each fiscal year.
The state Finance Director oversees the development and implementation of the energy conservation program. All costs associated with the implementation are to be fully funded by savings generated as a result of energy conservation.
