Energy Consumption

Chandler’s first step towards them more sustainable future is finding ways to reduce our energy consumption. Electricity from APS and SRP provides the power to lighter buildings, heat and cooler offices, and provides fuel for city fleet.

Some of the biggest challenges for the city is determining how to reduce costs and reduce energy usage overall prior to finding ways to increase energy production. The city is conducting building assessments and energy audits to find the fixtures and facilities that perform the worst. Steps are now in place to conduct those energy retrofits to reduce energy conception.
