The deadline to enter a friendly competition among commercial real estate organizations to reduce energy consumption has been extended to Jan. 31.

Then-Mayor Sam Adams issued the Kilowatt Crackdown challenge in September, challenging building owners to cut energy use, using cost savings and public recognition as incentives.

The crackdown is sponsored by the Building Performance Partnership, a collaboration between BOMA Oregon, BetterBricks, the city of Portland, Energy Trust of Oregon, Portland Development Commission and Clark Public Utilities.

The competition runs through mid-2014 and begins with an energy audit.

Organizers anticipate participants will save $2 million in operating and utility expenses over the course of the challenge.
