The Minnesota chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has teamed up with EnergyPrint, a St. Paul, Minn. energy consulting firm, to study the energy and water use of more than 150 buildings in the state that have LEED certification.
If the building was remodeled to get LEED certified, EnergyPrint will look at the bills for before-and-after snapshots of its efficiency. The buildings also will be compared to non-LEED buildings similar in size and type, and most of the comparisons will take place in about a 10-mile radius to the building being studied.
