Improvements to Lakeland Electric Administration Building Tighten Spigot on Maintenance Costs, Increase Energy Efficiency

City Receives Trane Energy Efficiency Leader Award

Apr 20th, 2009

Lakeland Electric and the City of Lakeland are working toward the goal of earning the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design™ (LEED) certification for Existing Buildings (EB), certifying it as a high-performance green building. The initial steps have been taken with a LEED EB project number already assigned. The improvements significantly increase energy and operating efficiency, reduce maintenance costs and save taxpayers money.

UCI accomplished a major safety milestone by completing 1,000,000 man hours worked without a Lost Time Injury. In real time that means UCI crews have worked almost three and a half years on hundreds of jobs over a six-state area with no lost time incidents. Another safety record was set by UCI during this time: UCI crews have worked 20 months without a single recordable incident.
