20-40-15 Initiative

20-40-15The 20-40-15 initiative, first rolled out by the City of Eden Prairie in December 2006, called for the City to improve energy efficiency in all of its facilities by 20 percent, increase the fuel efficiency of its vehicle fleet by 40 percent, and accomplish these goals by the year 2015.

When kicking off 20-40-15, the City worked closely with McKinstry, a firm recognized for its work in retrofitting schools and office buildings throughout the country to make them more energy-efficient.

The City’s partnership with McKinstry guaranteed the estimated savings from the projects it recommended would pay for the cost of implementing those projects as well as the firm’s consulting fees. If the savings fell short of the costs the City incurred, McKinstry would make up the difference — a win-win arrangement for the City and its taxpayers.

The final results for the 20-40-15 initiative were presented at the Feb. 16, 2016, City Council meeting. The City did meet, and even exceeded its goals — energy efficiency in City facilities increased by 21.8 percent and the fuel efficiency in the City's vehicle fleet increased by 44.4 percent.
