Federal Buildings Go Green with $4 Billion in Recovery Act Funds

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) recently reached the milestone of investing $4 billion in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds for energy efficiency in federal buildings nationwide. Since the passage of the Recovery Act in 2009, the GSA has awarded construction projects to more than 500 companies, creating jobs in all 50 states, two territories, and the District of Columbia. To accomplish this feat, the GSA streamlined operations to quickly award contracts and begin construction on hundreds of green projects. The agency anticipates that all new and significantly upgraded federal buildings will achieve at least a LEED Silver certification, thanks to the GSA's use of sustainable design and technology.  The GSA was given $5.5 billion under the Recovery Act to create green federal facilities. 4/14 EERE Network News
