2011 Case Study: Kansas Army National Guard
Executive Order (EO) 13423 states that the Guard must reduce water use by 16% between fiscal year (FY) 2008 and FY2015, at a minimum of 2% each year, compared to a baseline from FY2007. It also states that the Guard must reduce energy consumption by 3% annually between FY2006 and FY2015 or 30% total, compared to a baseline from FY2003. Hence, the Kansas Army National Guard is doing whatever it can to try to save energy and water. Paige Brewer was hired as an intern to help with various energy-saving and water-conserving projects. These included replacing paper towel dispensers with hand dryers, changing the power settings on the computers, turning off sprinkler systems, printing double-sided, creating an energy audit form, and performing an air-leak audit. Her recommended solutions would save 1,611,400 gallons of water, 25,814.187 kWh of electricity, and 2.121 tons of paper, which would also save the Kansas Army National Guard about $22,961.99 annually.
