Local Government Energy Reporting

To increase compliance and awareness of this reporting requirement, NCTCOG staff has developed resources and trainings and provided technical assistance to entities related to energy management. Staff will provide an overview of the energy reporting requirement, energy management resources developed and datapoints from FY19 reports submitted to SECO.
