Federal Mansfield Building in Butte to get $24 million for green energy

Federal and local officials announced Tuesday that $24 million in taxpayer funds from the Inflation Reduction Act will be spent on green energy improvements to the Mike Mansfield Federal Building and Courthouse in Butte.

Roughly $8 million will be spent on low-embodied carbon materials including concrete, glass and steel that have fewer greenhouse gas emissions associated with their production.

The U.S. General Services Administration says the federal Mike Mansfield Building and Courthouse in Butte is getting $24 million in taxpayer funds for green energy improvements. 


The remaining $16 million will be spent on emerging and sustainable technologies. They could include highly efficient mechanical systems like geothermal or air-source heat pumps that aim to reduce energy consumption by 40%, eliminate operational greenhouse gas emissions and enable the building to run on 100% electric power.

Robin Carnahan, administrator for the U.S. General Services Administration, made the announcement on the Mansfield building. She was joined by Brian Morris, chief judge of the U.S. District Court for Montana, and J.P. Gallagher, chief executive of Butte-Silver Bow County.
