Upgrades such as energy-efficient lighting, thermostat controls, window tinting and faucet aerators could save the county more than $113,000 each year.
An additional $116,000-$117,000 per year in outdated equipment operation and maintenance could also be saved by the upgrades.
Upgrading would also qualify the county for a one-time $22,000 incentive from Oncor.

After falling by 0.8 pct in 2017, EIA forecasts that U.S. energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions will rise by 2.2 pct in 2018 -- largely due to higher natural gas consumption because of a colder winter and a warmer summer than in 2017.
