Case Study: The City of Lewisville's Energy Consumption Reduction

Since the 1980’s, the City of Lewisville’s population has been experiencing rapid growth and is now home to approximately 100,000 residents. This rapid growth has led city leaders to pursue energy conservation strategies that will achieve a sustainable community. In July 2014, Lewisville adopted a strategic plan, the Lewisville 2025 Plan. This strategic plan guides the development of Lewisville up until 2025 and provides a foundation of themes, priorities and actions that support the city’s policies and goals. During the development of the plan, nine citywide priorities were identified in visioning workshops throughout the community. One of those nine priorities is sustainability. Supported by this document, the Lewisville 2025 Plan, city staff are continuously taking steps to promote energy conservation through energy policies and actions.
