  Some things we do to save energy:

Watch Public Safety Building Create Solar Power

Energy Conservation

Reducing the cost and environmental impact of the local government by:

  • Advancing energy efficiency and water conservation
  • Promoting the use of distributed and renewable energy
  • Improving utility management decisions at County facilities

Millions are spent annually to pay Lee County electrical bills. A conscious effort must be taken to minimize energy consumption.

Artificial lighting accounts for 44 percent of the electricity use in office buildings.

  • Make it a habit to turn off the lights when you're leaving any room for 15 minutes or more and use natural light when you can.
  • Promote using Energy Star-rated light bulbs and fixtures, which use at least two-thirds less energy than regular lighting.
  • Use timers or motion sensors that shut off lights when they're not needed.

Computers in the business sector unnecessarily waste $1 billion worth of electricity a year

  • Make it a habit to turn off your computer and power strip when you leave for the day.
  • Setting your computer to sleep mode automatically during short breaks can cut energy use by 70 percent. Remember, screen savers don't save energy.
  • Make it a policy to invest in energy–saving computers, monitors, and printers.

Minimize air conditioning costs

  • Set the temperature a little higher. 7 percent to 10 percent of your cooling costs can be reduced for each degree above 78.
  • Ensure filters are clean and preventative maintenance is being performed on HVAC systems.
  • Keep doors and windows closed.
  • Use shades or drapes to block the hot sun from heating your office.

A little here and a little there adds up to be a lot.

 Detention & Jail

Downtown Jail

Oversee the maintenance and repair of the 450-bed jail located downtown. Two trades workers maintain the jail.
A recent project was replacing the manual toilet flush valves with an electronic low flow flush valve, which also can limit the amount of flushes in a given time. This product has saved the taxpayers more than $150,000 annually in water.

Ortiz Detention Center

The Maintenance Detention Department works solely for the Lee County Sheriff's Office. At the Ortiz Ave site, we have two buildings: Core One and our newest building, Core Two (tower). We are responsible for the maintenance of the CPUs, which house the 60- to 90-day inmates. The maximum capacity for the inmate population at the Ortiz facility is 1,560.
