KSHE Update
  
We are happy to announce Spencer Hammond as our new KSHE Director of Sustainability!
 
Due to the government shutdown, Portfolio Manager has been down. It is now open, and we need everyone to update their data as quickly as possible through December 31, 2018. Don’t miss this chance to be a part of the first annual statewide competition among hospitals and other healthcare facilities to save energy and protect the climate. Competitors will work off excessive energy use through improvements in energy efficiency with help from KSHE, ASHE, and the Energy to Care program. The facilities that shed the most energy consumption will be recognized as the winners. KSHE is offering prizes and recognition to members who help their buildings become top energy and water savers!
