First Senior Care Communities Earn EPA's ENERGY STAR

Thursday, April 7, 2011

EPA is recognizing 30 Sunrise Senior Living communities as the first senior care facilities to earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance. The communities have upgraded to more efficient lighting and improved operations of heating and hot water systems to improve their energy efficiency and save money while contributing to cleaner air and protecting people’s health. There are more than 38,000 residential care communities in the US and together they spend more than $1.5 billion annually on energy use. If each community reduced its energy use by just 10%, Americans could save more than $150 million per year.
