ECAP Update

We have received a few questions asking how the cancellation of the behavior consultant contract will affect the EnergyCap database. Please know, the EnergyCap software is owned by the state and was not part of the behavior program. 

All organizations required to participate in the 20x2020 program should continue to enter utility data into the database. Your access to the EnergyCap software and the information that it contains will not change. Please continue to enter your data and use the software as you have been. 

At this time, the database is only available to organizations participating in the program. 

The 20x2020 State Energy Program will carry forward and the State Energy Program Office (SEPO) will continue to assist with any questions or issues. Remember, we are here to help you. Please feel free to contact us at 20x2020@omes.ok.gov.

Energy efficiency is a single solution to achieve multiple goals.  

You probably already know that using energy more efficiently can help save money on your utility bills. But did you know that saving energy can help you achieve much bigger goals?

Energy efficiency is one of the fastest and most effective ways to prevent greenhouse gas emissions, save money and create jobs. 

Most commercial buildings could use up to 30 percent less energy through money-saving investments in energy efficiency.

Energy Tips

Each individual has the opportunity to contribute to our goal of reducing energy consumption 20 percent by proactively finding small ways to help.

This week's tip:

Taking the stairs instead of the elevator isn't just for your health.
A typical hydraulic elevator in just a three-story building uses as much energy in a year as a normal household does in four months, and a ten-story building can use up to five and a half times as much energy. 

Try taking the stairs if you are able-bodied and only traveling up or down less than three floors, and look for others behind you when boarding an elevator to reduce unnecessary trips. It is indeed also great for your health!
