Our goal through the Better Buildings Challenge is to reduce energy usage in participating buildings by 20 percent over 10 years. Milwaukee’s portfolio of buildings has already reduced energy use 11 percent and is excited to now provide resources such as ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager®, energy assessments, PACE financing, and incentives from Focus on Energy to private buildings.
