The City of Meridian held the grand opening of the new City Hall in Downtown Meridian on November 21.  Idaho Power awarded the city $100,000 in incentives for the building's energy efficiency.

Some of the energy efficient features include occupancy sensors, a reflective roof treatment, premium performance windows, efficient complex cooling, and demand controlled ventilation.

The energy efficient measures are estimated to save the city $40,000 per year in electricity costs.

The City of Meridian will be pursuing a Silver Certification by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).  A designation granted by the U.S. Green Building Council for energy efficient and sustainable building.
