Following up on President Obama’s previous Executive Order for reducing the environmental impact of the federal government, each agency now has a specific plan for meeting the targets laid out by the president.  You can view them here.

This will be no minor feat…

“As the single largest energy consumer in the U.S. economy, the Federal Government spent more than $24.5 billion on electricity and fuel in 2008 alone.  Achieving the Federal GHG pollution reduction target will reduce Federal energy use by the equivalent of 646 trillion BTUs, equal to 205 million barrels of oil, and taking 17 million cars off the road for one year.  This is also equivalent to a cumulative total of $8 to $11 billion in avoided energy costs through 2020.”
