State Department of Administration spokesman Scott Larrivee said an audit of WEI -- focusing on "the work done and savings achieved" at UW-Stevens Point and UW-Parkside -- is expected by the end of July.
Larrivee said although energy use in state buildings is on the rise, he chalked it up to the addition of energy-guzzling space at the UW System and Department of Corrections, including new prisons and high-tech research and science buildings.
In 1998, state officials broadened WEI to include heating and cooling upgrades, high-efficiency motors, low-flow plumbing fixtures and other improvements installed under performance contracts that were meant to guarantee energy savings.
