PennDOT is Going Green!

Here's how facility improvements in PennDOT's Engineering District 6 support the GreenGov Council.

New LED Lighting has been installed on all 5 floors of the district's central office - approximately 1800 fixtures when complete. Plus, this is being done via a PECO reimbursement program and work is being done in-house to save the district money.

Bathroom upgrades include new water-saving flushometers reducing 1.5 gallons per flush to 1 pint.

New outdoor walkway lighting saw a changeover from 1000W lights to overhead low-amp LED light fixtures.

A glass block entryway wall was changed to a structural wall which provides better insulation making heating that area of the building more efficient.

More efficient air intake handlers have been installed on the roof.

Building trims have been fixed and windows were repaired and caulked to help with energy savings.

The department is planning to install charging stations at future projects, including four future facility projects in Dauphin, Greene, Lycoming, and Montgomery counties.
