Charging Station Image

Taking Charge

​Kane County’s electric vehicle charging station at the 3rd Street Courthouse is growing in popularity. Since its installation in 2012, the station has been used 633 times—which equates to a savings of 385 total gallons of gasoline and a reduction of 1290 kg of greenhouse gases entering our atmosphere! (Data as of 8/21/14)

Looking at the Bright Side

Upgrading the lighting in Kane County’s two dozen facilities is no easy task. Since 2009, Kane County has improved lighting efficiency at about half of its buildings by replacing old fluorescent lighting—upgrades made possible by over $385,000 inFederal and local grants! Installing occupancy sensors helps to further reduce electricity consumption at many of the buildings.

Out with the Old, In with the New

Kane County is keeping sustainability in mind when replacing broken appliances and other equipment. Since Energy Star-rated appliances can use half as much electricity as older models, the County’s facilities will reduce energy consumption and costs over time when choosing more efficient equipment.

A Breathe of Fresh Air

Kane County is currently developing an idling reduction program to reduce emissions at its facilities and help protect employee and visitor health. Stay tuned for details.
