Massachusetts pushes to cut energy use

Facilities plan to save $43m a year

Community swimming pools, skating rinks, state universities, courts, police barracks, and highway depots. They will all undergo renovations as part of an initiative launched Tuesday to cut energy consumption at hundreds of state facilities and save an estimated $43 million annually.

The plan will be implemented over the next three years at a total cost of more than $400 million. Renovations at 700 facilities are meant to help the state reach energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction goals set in 2007 by Governor Deval Patrick.
