Companies in Bellevue have the opportunity to participate in Urban Smart Bellevue, a no-cost program sponsored by PSE (Puget Sound Energy) and City of Bellevue aimed at making powerful energy-saving practices in commercial buildings. Urban Smart Bellevue seeks to engage facility managers and building occupants in adopting actions to conserve energy, including powering off workstation devices and turning off lights when not in use. The program aims to recruit 200 businesses to collectively reduce energy waste by 16 million kWh annually, enough energy to power 16 average commercial buildings a year. 

 

The program provides no-cost resources to help participating businesses, from energy management software to engagement campaign challenges to get occupants excited to save energy. At Microsoft, a worldwide leader in facility energy management, facilities head, Mohan Reddy is excited for the program. "Creating awareness with employees is always a challenge. We’re really looking forward to leveraging the Urban Smart program’s tools and resources to better engage our Bellevue-based employees in fun, energy saving activities that make a lasting impact on energy use in our buildings.” Microsoft is among the early participants in the program, which include the Sheraton, Westin, Meydenbauer Center, Urban Renaissance Group, Hines, Fana Group, Virginia Mason, and Apptio.
