County Adopts Energy Master Plan


By Herald Staff

CREST HAVEN — According to an Oct. 9 release, the Cape May County Board of Chosen Freeholders has adopted a comprehensive Energy Master Plan that will promote greater conservation and clean energy use in all county facilities.
The plan begins with upgrading all existing facilities to reduce consumption and switch to cleaner energy sources. It calls for all new and renovated buildings to aim for the highest attainable rating under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. The final phase of the plan pushes forward with solar, wind, geothermal and cogeneration power projects.
The County is also looking at vehicles and water use as other environmental areas of action. To achieve conservation as well as reduce our demand on foreign oil, the county is replacing its vehicle fleet with more hybrid cars and electric and bio-diesel trucks and buses. To preserve more of our water the county has started a wastewater reuse system in conjunction with the County Municipal Utilities Authority.
