Tulsa Fire Going Green

How Tulsa’s Bravest Give to the Environment

The Tulsa Fire Department is seeking ways to become more energy efficient. What is a city to do when many of its firehouses are older and less efficient? It’s not practical to rebuild. Aside from the prohibitive capital outlay of rebuilding these essential facilities, sometimes a city’s oldest firehouses serve as historical landmarks. Case in point: Tulsa’s oldest firehouse, Station No. 5, has unique architectural features dating back to 1932.

 

To tackle the energy efficiency issue, Tulsa Fire Department initiated a series of retrofit projects to make these firehouses more efficient by implementing a number of improvements including lighting, insulation, HVAC systems, and windows. Using our Energy Intelligence Suite, they easily reviewed energy savings averaging 27% across the updated firehouses and rapidly reported the success of their green initiatives back to the mayor’s office. These savings are now the business case for continued efficiency improvements.
