Policy Profile

Lead By Example Programs

Policy description:

Renewable energy, energy and water efficient technologies, and alternative-fueled vehicles have the potential to not only reduce the emissions footprints of state governments; they can also result in significant savings in terms of utility bills and maintenance costs. State procurement requirements and incentives ensure that state and local agencies, school districts, and universities will capitalize on these savings. For more information, see the full policy brief.
