Sustainability
Energy Conservation
The Department of Administrative Services (DAS) has designated its buildings as resource conservation zones. This means DAS works hard to save energy and water in its buildings, as well as ensure employees and tenants recycle to the best of their ability. The goal is to save taxpayer money and care for the environment to the greatest extent possible.
    
Energy Savings Report
  DAS compares all bills to the calendar year 2000 as a baseline.  The goal and OAR require a 20 percent reduction in electricity and natural gas usage by 2015. DAS does not adjust the buildings without baseline adjustments for weather or any other factors. The savings column represents the combined electric and gas savings in Btu’s compared to the year 2000 usage. The Energy Cost column includes the totals for electric and gas – not all utilities.

Night Audits
 As part of the effort to conserve resources, DAS conducts quarterly night audits of the buildings. They walk through the spaces to ensure that lights, appliances, and equipment remains off during u onoccupied times. Here are the results of the audits for the building.

DAS plans to conduct an audit of this building soon, but it hasn’t occurred yet.
 
 
 

Renewables
DAS completed construction of solar panels on the Old Pendleton State Office Building door in December 2008. This was the first solar array on any DAS building. It was paid with money banked into the Sustainability Fund from previous energy efficiency projects and had no impact on the division's budget from taxpayer money.
     
 

Transportation
