North Texas Local Government Energy Reporting
Under Texas Health and Safety Code §388.005(c), all political subdivisions, state agencies and institutes of higher education, located in ozone nonattainment or near nonattainment counties, are required to submit a Local Government Energy Report to the State Energy Conservation Office (SECO) tracking annual electricity consumption and progress towards the goal of a five percent reduction in annual electricity consumption. The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) offers technical assistance to regional entities required to submit their annual report to SECO. From the region, 28 entities submitted their FY18 report to SECO and this year, upon offering technical assistance, over 70 entities submitted their FY19 report.
