Modeled after similar programs elsewhere in the U.S., the "Kill-a-Watt" Challenge is Milwaukee County's annual energy conservation challenge. The goal of the 2014 challenge was to reduce June-August electricity use in Milwaukee County facilities by 3 percent relative to 2012.
The results are in, and the winner of the 2014 Kill-a-Watt Challenge is... City Campus. Compared with 2012, electricity use at City Campus was 29 percent less from June through August. Research Park, Fleet Maintenance, and the HOC also performed well, using over 20 percent less electricity during the challenge.
Collectively, Milwaukee County facilities saved 3.9 GWh (about $238,000) in electricity during the 2014 Kill-a-Watt Challenge. All but one of the facilities met our three percent electricity use reduction goal. This suggests that the County's conservation and efficiency initiatives are having a positive impact on energy use and costs.
