WASHINGTON – The U.S. General Services Administration today presented Congress with its plan to make critical investments in the federal infrastructure to both reduce the government’s energy consumption and keep federal buildings well-maintained and running efficiently.

GSA Public Buildings Service Acting Commissioner Anthony E. Costa testified before the House Subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings and Emergency Management on the fiscal year 2010 Capital Investment and Leasing Program.

“We believe these projects are the ones that will best meet the needs of our customer agencies,” Costa said, detailing the $1.19 billion program. “We estimate annual energy savings at 366 billion BTUs and $6 million resulting from projects funded with this request in FY 2010.”

The Capital Investment and Leasing Program will fund repairs and alterations, new construction, and leasing programs in FY 2010, including state-of-the-art efficiency upgrades through the High-Performance Green Buildings Program.

GSA’s High-Performance Green Building Program will deliver lasting progress toward modernizing our nation’s infrastructure, reducing the federal government’s consumption of energy and water, and increasing our use of clean and renewable sources of energy.
