Statutorily required renewable energy consumed by the agency

from U.S. General Services Administration – Executive Order 13423: Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management on Rap Genius

Meaning

Oops..when this executive order was signed, there was no previous law requiring specified renewable energy consumption. Executive Order 13123 required a goal to be set, but the deadline to meet that goal passed in 2005. Here is a history of efficiency laws.

However, towards the end of 2007 a law was passed, stating:

At least 30 percent of hot water demand in new or renovated federal buildings must come from solar hot water heating, if life-cycle cost-effective. Existing buildings with minor renovations must incorporate the most energy-efficient designs, equipment, and controls.
