In Wyoming, the State Energy Office leveraged SEP funding to reduce energy costs in public buildings by providing consulting services, procurement support and third-party contract verification for energy savings performance contracts. With this support, public agencies are able to redirect utility payments and maintenance budgets into infrastructure improvements.  For example, the Wyoming Department of Transportation is saving $215,000 annually by having upgraded 730,000 square feet in 32 buildings in Phase I of a project.  Phase II is underway to upgrade additional buildings with lighting and mechanical improvements and to improve all roadway lighting across the state using LED fixtures and lamps which will result in $690,000 in annual savings for an investment of $10.75 million in Tax Exempt Lease Purchase financing.
