The General Services Administration will start implementing an energy-saving technology across the federal government.

The agency has partnered with Schneider Electric, Pepco Holdings and FirstFuel Software to introduce the Green Button Pilot energy analytics tool, GSA said Wednesday.

Electricity consumers can download data on energy usage of their household by using the technology, GSA said.

“As one of the largest real estate managers in the country, adopting Green Button technology across our real estate portfolio allows us to improve building performance and save taxpayer dollars,” said Dan Tangherlini, GSA administrator.

The program was launched in 2013 following President Barack Obama’s memorandum for federal agencies to use renewable energy.
