The Department of Energy has installed meters in the James Forrestal Building that enable DOE to measure electricity use and costs in its headquarters facility.

The Forrestal electric meters provide daily readouts and comparison of data on electricity consumption for overhead lighting and power outlets. The purpose is to measure the electricity used by equipment that building occupants can control.

The metering gauges electricity costs – and thereby highlights how employees at Forrestal can help DOE save money by saving energy.

Data is collected and reported by zones throughout Forrestal's north, south, and west buildings.
