In 2006, the City of Sierra Madre received a city-wide energy audit through the California Energy Commission’s Energy Partnership program that was completed by Digital Energy, Inc. The focus of the City’s inquiry was to identify energy saving opportunities at the City Hall, Police/Fire Department, Recreation Center, Library, Senior Center and Corporation Yard. The result of the audit provided recommended projects in the lighting and HVAC applications at each of these locations.

The project was awarded to the lowest bidder and all locations were optimized for energy efficiency.
