Through 2030 District, Downtown Businesses Work to Cut Energy Usage

Members of a local energy-efficiency initiative collectively reduced their carbon impact by more than 10,200 metric tons of carbon dioxide in 2016, according to an annual report from San Antonio 2030 District, which is leading the effort.

The initiative, led mostly by private-sector businesses such as downtown building owners, aims to achieve a 50% reduction in energy consumption by 2030.

Addressing district members last week, SA 2030 District Director Elizabeth Kertesz said that the group’s members together recorded a 22% drop in energy use intensity (EUI). The district uses the EPA’s Energy Star Portfolio Manager as a measurement tool.
