A San Luis Obispo County grand jury report released this week says the county is currently behind in its efforts to conserve energy at its facilities.
The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 requires all cities and counties to develop specific plans to reduce energy consumption.
In response to this, San Luis Obispo County crafted its Energy Wise Plan in 2011.
Included in the plan was a promise to reduce energy consumption by 15% in county facilities by 2020.
The grand jury report states that the county has struggled to meet these goals.
The report also finds an energy manager position has been vacant for three years and the county lacks the adequate software to monitor the consumption at its approximately 200 facilities.
