STATE COLLEGE, PA, Aug. 18, 2008 -- The State of Colorado through the Governor's Energy Office (GEO) has selected Good Steward Software's EnergyCAP utility tracking tool to manage and report energy and water use.

Through an Executive Order of Governor Bill Ritter, Jr., the State's "lead by example" program seeks to reduce energy consumption by 20 percent and water consumption by 10 percent in State buildings by 2012, against baseline of state fiscal year 2005-06.

"The first step to effectively manage and reduce energy and water use is to ensure that utility data is consistently reported, analyzed, tracked, and base-lined," notes Angie Fyfe, Greening Government Program Manager at the GEO. "The EnergyCAP tool will allow us to do that on a statewide basis for the first time."

Under Governor Ritter's plan, all state departments, agencies and offices will report electric, heating fuel, and water consumption through the EnergyCAP software. Higher Education, because of their unique environment, will have individual databases.

To support the Governor's energy and water efficiency goals on a local level, Good Steward now provides preferred pricing to Colorado local governments, schools, and political subdivisions through a State price agreement. The pricing is based on population or student enrollment.

Good Steward Software, based in State College, PA, publishes EnergyCAP® energy efficiency software, which is used by clients for enterprise-wide energy tracking, auditing, utility bill payment processing, energy management reporting, greenhouse gas tracking and more.
