Change the World. Start with ENERGY STAR.

Small Businesses and Congregations Honored by EPA for Energy Savings

Wednesday, September 12, 2007

The 2007 ENERGY STAR Award winners for Small Businesses and Congregations together saved more than $1.2 million in annual energy costs and reduced greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 1,600 vehicles annually. This year's diverse group of eight small businesses and three congregations includes an auto dealership, a winery and a mega-church. Small businesses and congregations that strategically manage the energy performance of their facilities can cut utility costs by 25 percent or more by making efficiency improvements and, at the same time, make significant contributions to a healthier environment.
